Really interesting read definitely shows how people can press on in the face of great challenges.

There was much sympathy (and empathy) for him and their children in the comment section. I found his devotion and strength admirable. Dealing with dementia and Alzheimer's is no easy road, and that's an understatement. It's good that he was so open about it, because of his position and the fact that rumors were making the rounds.

Good human subject story. Dementia is really tragic, especially in the latter stages. I had first-hand experience of this happening to a loved one of mine for several months prior to her death.

Yeah, I was impressed that people were being sympathetic. I was also shocked at how relatively young Christa Beverly is. At only 52 years old, one should have a lot of living left.

Agreed and it was good to see that. Sometimes we get so caught up in the politics of politics that we don't see that public figures are still human and may be dealing with more than we know. Speaking from experience, it is definiltely difficult caring for a relative that has an incurable condition and having to balance the rest of your life. Hats off to him.

That was probably one of the saddest parts of the story. Based on the timeline it started in her mid-forties which is really young all things considered.

Good luck; however u proceed.

Also, I' m not ultra conservative. My primary spectrum isn't left to right.

I simply believe government failure is often worse than the market failures they attempt to correct. I also recognize that from both left and right a lot of power can be created attempting to correct for whatever cause one advocates and corruption tends to run hand in hand on both side.
