Many of you have followed Chips struggle over the years, but to me, he is more than just a journal, he is also my friend. Throughout his journey he has given us both insight as well as courage, and he has faced each challenge with both dignity and humor. Chip is one of those rare individuals who has shed light on what it's like to face dementia each day, and because of his dedication to us, he has set an example that come what may, you can live each day to fullest....no matter how trying it may be.
