Amen to that.

His last song 'I'm Not Gonna Miss You' chronicled his battle with the disease:

Watch/listen to the video.

(If you've had a loved one affected by this horrid disease, tissues at the ready.)

Thanks meloncollie, that did bring a lump to my throat. My dad has vascular dementia, at the moment he isn't too bad, his short term memory is bad, but he still knows us all and with my mum's and sisters' help he is doing pretty well. I dread the future though.

Thank you all. I'm looking forward to seeing my lovely dad and all the family in September when I pop home for a visit. X
