In lieu of flowers, we would like to request donations for research into Alzheimer and Dementia at the University of Chicago Memory Clinic.  90% of what we know about these brain diseases have only been learned the past 10 years.  These diseases are afflicting many persons at younger ages than they have in the past and it’s important to understand both the causes and potential cures and prevention strategies.  University of Chicago has provided an incredible amount of support, guidance and information for us the past 3 years and we would like to Pay It Forward in his honor.
