Our team, Dallas Universal Life Church Crusaders sponsored by Kool McKool Domain Services is walking for the fifth year in a row. Our team walks again this year in honor of Vira Evelyn Miller McKool, our team leader, Mark's grandmother. Evelyn has good days and bad days. She often asks the same question over and over every 5 minutes and her strongest memories all seem to be long term going back to the days of her youth. This disease is mean, heartless and without compassion for any it affects. It has taken an extremely strong women, a woman who was married for more than 60 years before her husband passed, raised 7 adopted children beautifully and cared for more than 30 foster children, and obliterated her. Mark and his family are devastated and heart broken that this could happen to someone who had such a strong mind. It's so hard to see the person you once knew and still deeply love, look into their eyes and know that they don't know who you are or what you are doing there to begin with. Agonizing to know that these twilight years that our loved ones have been blessed with are cursed by this horrible disease robbing the afflicted, their family and their loved ones of precious memories of a lifetime. Please, let's do everything we can so that the suffering and pain can stop for all who are affected by this disease.We hope you can find it in your heart to support Dallas Universal Life Church Crusaders sponsored by Kool McKool Domain Services in this walk to end Alzheimer's.
