There are kind people in our world. My step father used to wander away from the house for hours. I would be going crazy trying to find him. More than once a kind person would stop their car, get out and kindly ask if he was lost. Earl would say, "Well, I know I live somewhere, but I can't remember the house." Then, they would drive him around until he could identify his home. Earl passed 2 years ago from dementia, my mother just a little over a year ago from Alzheimer's. Bless all of you who know, understand, stop and help.
