About the Book

THIS BOOK SHARES the struggle of a couple who faced the onset of dementia early in their marriage. Like many of us, Mel and Aleta had visions of a full life, filled with possibilities. They had dreams of growing old together and traveling the world. They believed in education and raised their children emphasizing how education was the one gift that no one could steal. Little did they know that dementia was a thief that could take their dreams away. The book portrays their life story from the beginning and how Mel continues to keep his promise, “Till death do us part.”
