Like Larry, Richard was one of Mom’s former classmates. After Dad died Richard became Mom’s knight-in-shining-armor. He took her on dates, drove her to doctor appointments and other errands. He knew about the Alzheimer’s diagnosis long before I did. He took care of her, hiding the worst of her symptoms from my brother and me until he couldn’t do it alone.

What a blessing he was for her. And her children.
He was, Susan. Most definitely.
Richard is a hero.
What a great man.
What everyone else said.
I really want to know where the photo was taken.
The Dutch Inn West
Don’t think I’ve been there…but it looked familiar!
It was a BAD place when you lived in Elgin and still has that reputation but it has really cleaned up and the food is wonderful.
