A candid and gripping account of one man's effort to care for and support his wife of 39 years as she slowly and painfully degenerated from an active, vivacious wife and mother into an invalid who lost control of her body, her mind and ultimately her spirit and will to live. One baby boomer poignantly recounts his difficult story for the benefit of the millions of other baby boomers who will soon face similar challenges.
