That sucks, big time. :(  I see from that message that he is dealing with it with his sense of humor intact anyway...but that is really sad. My dad had a form of Alzheimers so I know what looms ahead for Terry.

I too, know what lies ahead. My dad was a brilliant research scientist for RCA Corp. He holds two patents on the red color process in your TV. Now he doesn't recognize us when we go to see him (he is in a nursing home in another state) and if we call, he just hollers that he can't hear us and hangs up. So, so sad to watch it happen...
