I started a Live Story on him on Showbiz.  If anyone can't see because they are using Classic view, they can go to the Delphi home page to read the tweets.

I know.  81 doesn't seem that old anymore. I know several people in their 90s!

While expected, this is still very sad. The high profile nature of his story (and celebrity) at the very least helped renew attention for Dementia / Alzheimers. The CNN special really pulled back the curtain and showed just how much of a toll this disease takes on not only the patient but also the family. It really bruises everybody involved.
