Julian coached the swim team and was an high school calculus educator for 50 years in Gaston Country. For decades, Julian also participated in sculpting classic statuses in the local countryside. Upon retirement, Julian’s passion was on fire for his hobby and as he became well known as a gifted metal sculptor. He and Karla, his wife of 60 years, were enjoying their dreamlife. Then Karla perceived a markedly different behavior in Henry. Julian, she noticed would stare for long periods at his sculpting without moving at all. He seemed to be daydreaming. He seemed to be missing that razor sharp wittiness that made him the favorite at debates throughout his teaching career. Karla set an appointment for Julian to see a doctor, who performed a series of tests. The doctor explained to Karla and Julian had Alzheimer’s.
