Marti and Bill Wilson
Editor’s note: Alzheimer’s Disease has long been known as the cruelest disease, because it robs caregivers of connection to their loved one’s mind and spirit while the physical body remains. In this story, retired Florida registered nurse and entertainer Marti Wilson tells the remarkable story of the closing chapters of her late husband’s battle with Alzheimer’s – and the rare gift of a goodbye that he was able to leave her with. Marti Wilson is known on stage as Lili Rose, and may be familiar to Florida audiences from her years of performing at Rosie O’Grady’s at Church Street Station in Orlando as well in many other Florida venues. Today she lives in Ellenton, Fla., near the Manatee River.

Military Veterans are proud of their service to their nation and rightly so. They’ve earned that right putting their lives on the line as family members stand strong during the Servicemember’s deployments and training exercises. The character of a Veteran is one who remains resolute to remain independent.
