Bernard C Hendershot was a proud veteran of USAF and had a great love for engineering and aircrafts. He worked at McDonnell Douglas and loved his job and working on anything and everything that moved. After he was diagnosed and my Grandma, his one and only true love, passed, his sickness rapidly took the proud, smart an away from us and we watched him fade away. The hardest part for me was when he would realize he couldn't remember my name or a place we always rode to on his motorcycle. As he slipped away, my Aunties and my Mom made sure to keep him home with family until he passed. This took financial and emotional impacts on all of us, my Auntie Monica had to give up her home and move in as he needed round the clock care. He passed in 2000 and he will forever be my true hero.
