"Today is the first day of the rest of my life..."
For almost fifty years, John and his wife Kerry have shared a life filled with travel, art, friends and joy. When Kerry's Alzheimer's progressed and John felt he could no longer care for her by himself, he made the difficult decision to move her into a memory care community.
This is the story of John and Kerry's great love that spans over decades and overcomes the challenges of Alzheimer's.
