It surprised me when he said that Grandpa owned the Heating & Air Conditioning business until he showed signs of Alzheimer’s & that’s when he took over the dealer
Over the last year, I had been noticing signs that my dad was having some kind of mental concerns, dad was forgetting a lot of things & remembering things that never happened. He wanted me to call my Grandma & Grandpa, who had been dead for almost twenty years, & invite them for Thanksgiving. It was the beginning of a new year. I sad I was going to lose my dad if he didn’t get the right help. I knew it was time to call the nurse & have him assessed. When he stood out in the yard last week, I asked him what he was doing. He told me he had called the Heating & Air Conditioning business to have the oil furnace repaired, then every one of us lived in the south & didn’t need a oil furnace. I asked him which Heating & Air Conditioning business he had called. He looked down that street & said he had called the 1, however there was an Heating & Air Conditioning service van coming down the street, from the moment he saw it, he was flapping his arms & waving for the Heating & Air Conditioning service van to stop. When the driver saw him, he waved & kept going. Dad smiled & told me that his dad consistently slowed down & waved to him when he was in the Heating & Air Conditioning service van. I didn’t know Grandpa was an Heating & Air Conditioning worker, so I called my uncle. It surprised me when he said that Grandpa owned the Heating & Air Conditioning business until he showed signs of Alzheimer’s & that’s when he took over the dealer. I thanked him for the information & when he asked why I wanted to know; I told him about dad. I knew he was breaking up; he told me that if I needed any help to let him know.
