Husband wanders off as an act of love for his wife
Melvyn was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s three years ago, and it’s been hard for Doris to watch the dieases take hold. Melvyn can’t remember their engagement very well, and he generally needs assistance walking outside, but a recent event made Doris realize that Melvyn is still the man she has always known.
The story is a testament to the fact that long-standing habits born of love for another can stay with us, and that this love becomes the deepest part of us, almost instinctual.
