Dad passed away from Alzheimers. Looking backward from when it became severe,
we could connect the dots of his behavior changes from his heart attack at 55.
This is some 17 years of progressive degenerative subtle decline.
Alzheimers is a terrible disease for the family member who has
it and for the family who cares for them.
