“My dad passed away about a year ago because of Alzheimer's disease, and he suffered and battled for 17 years. It was a long drawn out process … We knew the day was coming, but it always hits you like a ton of bricks when it actually does happen. That day, I went home and watched the movie ‘Wild’ with Reese Witherspoon.
