My beloved John has just finished his first walk of 1 complete mile this year! It was a fund-raiser for this great program that allows Alzheimer’s patients to pre-load iPods with lots of favorite music from their youth. At the end stages of this disease, music is often found to be one way they can regain a bit of connection to this world.

I’m so thrilled that he was able to do this. His life was spent doing good for others and he still enjoys the outdoors.

Three years ago we spent a lot of time going through his music collection. He had CDs from Louis Armstrong to the Beatles. He added some Mozart and Schubert. So he has a wonderful eclectic playlist!
