With starry eyed optimism, nearly every newlywed couple says they will live to old age then die holding the hand of their beloved while asleep. While this dream of youth may not come to fruition for most couples, it did happen to an Idaho couple who had been married for 63 years.
Bob and Edna Huntley got off to a rocky start in their courtship, but it ended magnificently. On their first date, Bob stood Edna up to go hunting instead. Edna forgave him and they were married some time later.

At the time of their death, they were persevering through her cancer and his dementia. She died in her sleep with him following less than an hour later.
Their marriage was a great success and an example to us all. They proved the veracity of this quote:

Nancy Reagan, an Alzheimer's advocate
At FotoDialer, we love to recognize those who serve others. One of these greats was Nancy Reagan. Mrs. Reagan used her position and the Alzheimer's diagnosis of her husband, former President Ronald Reagan, to bring awareness to the disease.
Mrs. Reagan was a great advocate for the afflicted, their families, and caregivers. The Alzheimer's Association wrote a great article honoring her after her death on March 6, 2016.
What other remarkable Alzheimer's advocates do you know of that we should mention?
"To my young friends out there: Life can be great, but not when you can't see it. So, open your eyes to life: to see it in the vivid colors that God gave us as a precious gift to His children, to enjoy life to the fullest, and to make it count. Say yes to your life."
