As many of you know, I am walking in the Alzheimer’s Association WALK TO REMEMBER October 5th at Lake Eola in Downtown Orlando!
In 2009 I lost my grandfather William Daniel “Dan” Hills 1923-2009 to this dreaded disease.
Not only did it take his life but 5 to 6 years prior literally stole the very essence of this man that I had known for 43 years. He was the kind of guy that was always there, had an answer for a problem, and or knew how to fix it, could make you laugh about it or at least duck tape it and make it work.
He grew up in Central Illinois out of the depression to become all of the following over the course of his 86 years Farmer, Bootlegger, Card Sharp, UAW Member, Pool Hustler, Cattleman, Fisherman, Comedian, Man of Leisure, Father, Grandfather, and Great Grandfather and so much more, he really did lead a life at times you would only read about in a book, or watch in a movie.
One of his favorite enjoyments was to walk daily even after Alzheimer’s took his mind. He was actually in perfect health when he passed other than having Alzheimer’s Disease. So that is why I chose this way to honor him by participating in this event.
With that, yes I am asking for a donation to help fund the research of this disease. So if you can take a few minutes out of your day and go to the link below for Team for Traveling Hills and donate to anyone of the walkers so we can achieve or exceed our goal! I would GREATLY appreciate it!
Again Thanks for your time and anything you can do to help me with this event.
