Daddy had not been correctly diagnosed at the time this pic was taken in Sept of 2013, although he'd been showing symptoms for a decade, since 2006. His first symptom was double vision. Then the falls began, which because these falls were usually backwards with little or no effort/ability on his part, to break the fall or catch himself, he's taken some HARD hits. He can no longer walk or stand, which limits his falls, but thinking back when he was falling often, despite his carers great efforts to prevent it, it's amazing he wasn't more seriously injured, He fells backwards off the top of his boat and out the back of a pickup truck and into walls and floors and more, leaving many dents in everything, even iron. This photo seems like a decade ago, but it's only been 3 years. There was still a light in his eyes that probably isn't there anymore. And check him out, standing all cool with his hand in his pocket and his other arm around my baby, looking genuinely pleased and happy. Oh how I miss him already because the man in this pic is sadly already gone... gone but yet, not. I don't want him to ever be gone and try with all my might to muster up any denial I can find. Ha, it doesn't work very well. And please know I don't really look that scary, my eyes were blinking and not fully open making me appear.. well, scary! Thanks for letting me share. Sheila
