My Brother Had Alzheimer's

My brother had Alzheimer's. It was terrible. He died at age 70. He did not even know me. It was so sad.

70 is young these days. Your brother has missed some fine years of his life, and you live yours without him. I never had a brother or sister, but wish I did. If you like, tell us his first name, whether he was younger or older, and what you enjoyed about growing up with him.

My brother's name is Bill. He was 10 years older than me. We had fun growing up together.

Sorry Bob, that would be very hard. My experience was with my Mother, much older. The grief really starts befor they leave and it is very difficult isnt it. Thank you for sharing.
