My father, Othel Pearson, suffers from Alzheimer's but occasionally he comes back to us for a bit. I told him about Rodney's passing and he said "he was one good Italian." He then went on to ask about Cindy and Blane. It's amazing the things he remembers. He sometimes doesn't remember his children but he has great details of the past. The Pearson family will keep you in our prayers.
