Very emotional........lost my two parents a few years back, brought back a whole lot of memories as we used to RV out in the whole of western USA for 6 months every two years, then they did it without us kids....created the same memories, same type of albums. My dad also brought us to jeeps by taking us to Jeep Jamboree '83 as the Head of AMC/Renault (at the time), it never left me....

Thank you for sharing your personal heartfelt video. It was well done and brought back many memories both good and bad from my past as well. My prayers go out to you and I hope they Journey continues as long as possible.

I lost both of my parents to Alzheimer's 13 days apart. When ever my parents moved us Dad always went first and got everything set up for us beforehand. He did the same in his passing.

We lost my wife's parents to similar circumstances. It's difficult to watch but it makes you realize how precious life itself is. One thing is you have all the outstanding memories to share with each other, please don't loose that.

Take as much time as you need, we'll be here for you.
Thank you for that. Cindy and I really do appreciate it.
I am so sorry to read this news. I am going through very similar issues with my father in law, Alzheimer and cancer at the same time. Getting old is not fun.

Best wishes,
David
We're so sorry to hear you're going through this too. Please take care.
Thank you for sharing.
Hope it all works out well for you guys.
Dealing with that stuff is never easy.
Take care
Thank you.

Thanks for the update and glad to hear yall are taking the time to be there for family. That's what is most important. I recently have lost both my grandparents on my Dad's side in just over a year of each other. This video definitely resonated with me, so thank you for sharing. Wish yall all the best!

Eddie and Cindy thank you for sharing that heartfelt video. You guys make the best videos no matter what the subject is. I lost my Father to Dementia back in 2015 and he was in a memory care unit. God bless you two!

Thoughts go out to you guys. Lost my dad to Alzheimer's, but it took 15 years. At the end he was just this confused old man who knew he should know who we were, but couldnt remember. Mom, on the other hand, is still going strong at 92.

Agreed, family is what's truly first. I have grandparents in their late 80s who have been fortunate enough to keep going strong. Can't imagine what's it like to go through what you guys have been through. Best wishes to you 4 and thanks for sharing. That's the real Wayalife.

I'm sure that was a very difficult aspect of your life to share with us, thank you. I've been trying to keep my dad busy helping me with projects because it nearly guarantees we will spend every weekend together until we finish. The possibility of assisted living for my parents has been rolling around in my head for years, I just hope my wife or I will be able to retire before either of them get bad enough to need constant supervision.

Thanks for sharing something so personal. But from what I can tell Cindy’s parents lived a full life before getting this BS. God bless!!
 
I was dealing with end of life care the last few years so I have an idea what you are going through. Nothing will make it easy. Make them happy and comfortable the best you can. You guys are awesome!

I remember back a few months ago when I was asking about the new years run... You said you were trying as hard as you could to put something together. Not knowing your situation I took a step back and decided to just be patient. I am glad I did. I had no idea what you were going through. I want to thank you again for talking the time to put the event together. I understand now that you have had a ton on your plate.

I had a similar situation with my grandparents back in the 90's. A grandmother with ALS and shortly after a grandfather with cancer, brain tumors, and alzheimers/dimentia. I know all too well how time consuming taking care of someone you care about can be. As they say... Been there... Done that... Wouldn't wish it on anyone.

Thanks for sharing.
