The Reality Of Dementia

I'm sharing with you what is the emotional progression of a family dealing with Dementia. My father was diagnosed with FrontalTemporoDementia in late March of 2004 at the age of 60. This is from my point of view as his only son, who loves the man who raised him, as the condition, and Life, moves ahead.

Gerry Lott. My Dad, My Hero.

Geoff & His Dad, Gerry. Georgia, 1976

Thank you Dad.
For everything.
I love you more than I can ever tell you.
You were the best I could have hoped for, and greater than I deserved at times.

October 26, 1943 - November 16, 2008
That dash there, that was a hell of a great life.

Geoff, I love this picture of your dad and you! You were such a cutie...and still are! You can see the love and admiration he had for you by the way he's looking at you. I will remember your dad when I think of mine...on their birthday...October 26th! May your dad rest in peace. Love and prayers to you and your family. Vicki Jung
