William Utermohlen was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease in 1995, and from that moment on, he began to try to understand it by painting himself.

how sad

An ex-girlfriend of mine use to care for her Grandfather who had Alzheimer.
He could be led around and asked to do basic things but was otherwise completely unaware of his surroundings. I stopped by one day and she was very upset.
She told me that the two of them were sitting in the living room watching TV
when he suddenly 'came to' looked around looked at his hands and then at her
and asked "How long have I been away". She told him it had been several years
since he had been lucid. She said he started crying and then slowly slipped back
into oblivion.

I cannot fathom 'coming to' and realizing, actually understanding THAT.

What a horrible disease.

This is a nasty illness, the sooner they find a cure or prevention the better.
Its a huge problem because of the wests ageing population.

A cruel illness, only made more obvious in those few paintings.

For all of lifes rewards, there are some prices too high to pay.

In some 'golden years', no gold can be found. Sad.

miscellaneous, This story has affected me on a very deep level. I am reminded of my Grandpa Joe who died of Parkinsons and one day his mind was just gone. we never heard from him again.
