Dear Classmate friends,

Hi and I hope that all is well with all of you and your families.

As many of you know, I had been diagnosed with having Alzheimer's (dementia) about 8 years ago (I continue to experience mid-stage symptoms of dementia along with a slew of other significant and difficult health issues). That is why I was unable to attend the last several reunions.

Back in 2012, I was selected to serve on the National Alzheimer's Association Early-Stage Advisory Group, of which I am now an alumnus. The role of the Early-Stage Advisory Group is to raise awareness about early-stage issues, act as a spokesperson for national media opportunities, advocate to increase funding for research, and support the Association in providing the most appropriate services for people living with Alzheimer's. I have also been active locally, in the State of Florida and nationally with regards to Alzheimer's and other dementia advocacy, programs and initiatives for care. I have had to +++ dramatically cut back on the vast bulk of my helping with dementia advocacy with my declining short and long term memory and other medical = health issues.

Yes, I continue to have huge health challenges, but I do my best to live in the gift of the present moments...

My wife Gail and I will be celebrating our 45th anniversary next March.

PS = CNN (Dr. Sanjay Gupta and team) have been following me and my family for about 3 years with regards to my having Alzheimer's. There is a written portion to what they have called "Sandy's Story" and 7 video segments = much of which had been filmed a few years ago... the most recent segment is the last segment (at my daughter Laurie's wedding). Here is a link to the written segment and the 7 video segments that are online and many of which were on CNN TV...

With love and best regards,
Sandy
