If you knew him, you had heard him tell the story about his childhood love for his wife of 56 years. He would have us all believe that he had changed her diapers but he was only 10 months older than her.
He often told us how as a young boy of only 4 years, he told her father that he was going to marry her. That was when he started planting pennies.
One day her father, a tall man in stature, found Ronnie digging holes in his garden. He watched him drop the pennies into each hole and carefully pack the dirt over each one.
He bellowed, "What are you doing boy?" Ronnie answered enthusiastically, "I'm planting money trees; so when I grow up, I can afford to marry your daughter!"
Of course, that carefully sown row of pennies never grew trees with leaves of currency; but they did enjoy 56 years of wedded bliss.
We lost Dad to Alzheimers this year, in March. This last year was hardly worth living for Daddy. He literally grabbed the golden ring when God took him home.
For several years now we have participated in the annual Memory Walk, in honor of Dad, and his surviving brother, who is also suffering from the disease.
The walk is organized by the Alzheimers Association in an effort to raise funds, awareness, support research and hopefully find a cure for this horrible disease.
So now.. we keep plantin pennies. Pennies to help grow awareness and fight this wretched disease. You may well know or care for someone who has been or will be diagnosed with Alzheimers.
Help us.. Learn more about Alzheimers. I highly recommend the interactive tour of the brain on the Associations website. It explains how the disease attacks and deteriorates the brain of an Alzhiemers patient. Especially if you are caring for someone.
