Helping each other is the human way – people cannot see another person in distress without wanting to help them find their way and mend their broken heart. The people in the following funny fictitious story really tried, too!
When I went to lunch today, I noticed an old man sitting on a park bench, sobbing his eyes out. I stopped and asked him what was wrong.
He told me:
"I have a stunning 22-year-old wife at home. She rubs my back every morning and then gets up and makes me pancakes, sausage, sliced fruit, and freshly ground coffee."
I asked him, "Well, then why are you crying?"

He added, "She makes me homemade soup for lunch and bakes my favorite biscuits, cleans the house and then watches sports TV with me for the rest of the afternoon."
The man started sobbing even louder.
"But, why are you crying about all of that?"
He continued, "For dinner, she makes me a gourmet meal with wine and my favorite dessert. My eyes are failing so she reads to me, and then we cuddle until the small hours."
Tiring of his sob story that sounded more like he was showing off, I asked, "If she's that wonderful, why in the world would you be crying?"

He replied, heartbroken:
"I can't remember where I live."
Shame, that poor old man. His story is so sad, it's actually funny. Remember to share it with your friends.
Alzheimer's is not funny, however, and David Milch, creator of "NYPD Blue" and "Deadwood" recently spoke about his diagnosis.
A year since receiving the news, the long-time TV producer has begun to understand what the diagnosis means to his life and career within the television industry.
Milch's loss of focus and memory and his unusually short temper were the first signs of Alzheimer's noticed by those around him.
He sadly also divulged that his condition was progressive
