This year’s Memory Walk for the Walk to End Alzheimer’s is once again approaching. On Oct. 8, I will be participating in this event. This will be my fifth year walking for this very important cause. I walk this walk in memory of my own dad, Gene Bolduc, who succumbed to this horrible monster of a disease on May 29, 2004, Memorial Day weekend — his traditional weekend spent fishing with his sons.

It was heart-wrenching to watch Dad slip away from us as this awful disease slowly destroyed his mind and spirit and slowly stole him from us. Dad’s passing left a huge void in our family; he had so many grandchildren and great grandchildren that he never even had a chance to meet, or they to meet him and come to love him as we all did. There are too many victims living with this disease and slowly dying from it. We have to do something. If you have watched someone suffer, I’m so sorry. If you have not, prepare yourself.

If you’d like to help me help the cause, visit and donate in memory of a loved one.
