  5. I'm speechless.
     
  6. The pictures are just so priceless, but it reminds me of what I can become in the future, and how that may affect my kids/grand kids.

    Oh my, that was the most powerful thing I've looked at/read in ages.
     
  9. Wonderful and moving. My mom died of Alzheimer's. You can't imagine what it's like to witness a parent "fading away" until your mom or dad looks at you, smiles, and asks "Who are you?"
     
  10. Moving, powerful, stunning images that sear themselves into your psyche.

    This is the power of photography. This is what it is all about.

    Thanks for posting this, Shane.

  13. Having my Dad go young i find it hard to imagine this.
    My Mom is out doing "centuries" almost every saturday (100 mile rides) on her bike at 60! These photos, his candor in his feelings were raw.

    Very touching- very....

  16. I haven't seen the entire website yet. But I am now witnessing what my grandmother is going through in the last 10 years..and she's 94..Alzheimers is not a pretty thing, I agree. Alzheimer's is just not a friend but a thief, a robber of a person's mind. :confused: 

    Thanks for sharing.
