Wow, this story was really touching. I started reading this as I was going on a mock trial trip. I had tears in my eyes at the end. It was sad how someone as "larger than life" like John Winchester, succumb to the Alzheimer's.
This disease has touched a relative of mine. I heard stories of what he used to be back in the day and it is hard to believe that is a former shadow of himself. This story is a true gem.

Just wanted to tell you how brilliant this story is; I can't even begin to tell you how touching and heart wrenching it is. I had a Grandmother who suffered from Alzhimer's and you explained everything in such detail. You nailed everything spot on. Both of the boy's suffering couldn't have been conveyed any better. Dean's anger at the injustice of it all and Sam's helplessness was just so brilliantly executed in this story.
I love your writing and can't get enough of your stories. Keep up the great work!

I am now sitting here, on the verge of blubbering like a baby,
and the only reason i am not is because there is someone else in my room, and i don't want to embarass myself...
that was a truely brilliant and original story, and i wish you the best in any other stories that you go on to write :D
I love the character of John very much and that story truely did tug at my heart strings ;(
It was a brilliant read,

This was a great story. Gotta say, in some way, kind of made it 'better' the way that he did die, saving his son and all. This slow deteriation would've killed me. The story itself was amazing. Quick refrencing and somple details, and yet still able to capture their ansgt and turmoil all the way through...Great job
That's it ;)

“I don’t treat him like Dad because he doesn’t act like our dad,” this line is about as truthful as you can get when face with this disease. From someone who has to deal with it professionally and personally, I found your story realistic. Even down to how the boys deal differently to the disease.
That one line told me, that you either have dealt with the disease or you are very intune to human nature. Because I believe eventually a family member will say those words at some point. I know I did.
