They are not dead who live in lives they leave behind. In those whom they have blessed, they live again. – Maya Angelou
My father was born March 12, 1918. He died on October 13, 2007.
I like to believe I honor Dad with the way I live and what I’ve done with my life. One of those honoring aspects was writing my novel, Requiem for the status quo, a book that with literary license chronicles my caregiving days after my father was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease.
Don Patrick Desonier is a legend in my eyes, and I know I can say the same for those of my siblings, and the many people who knew him well. He left this earth more than twelve years ago, but he will never be forgotten.
