  5. My dear Robert
    Where did my Robbie go? This was not the man I fell in love with 27 years ago the day we met. So hard to describe the disease that took him away from me little bits at a time. It’s not until one lives daily with an Alzheimer victim can you truly realize how tragic and bizarre life can be.
    I was angry, I was confused, I was the victim of this disease too. I realize now that I never gave up and that sitting beside him in that hospital room, all I could reflect on was the wonderful life we had together.
    Robert Fauer was truly my hero. From the day we met we were inseparable. We did everything together. He was the most amazing man I have ever known. He was so easygoing, and kind. He was my soulmate. I could not believe how much we had in common and our likes, values and interests were so similar.
    There was not one thing that this man could not do. He had golden or should I say platinum hands. If he was not sure how to build something he read books on it and created a masterpiece.
    His love for music and art was amazing. We spend numerous hours visiting every museum and art gallery. When we vacationed, you would never find us sitting on a beach. We browsed through every antique shop, thrift shop and flea market we could find. We loved to stroll through towns and malls. I had to drag him out of the mall. Hey ladies could you beat that?
    Robert was also an avid reader. He had hundreds of books on science, art, medicine, history, psychology, human nature and the English language was his favorite. He collected dictionaries, poetry, English phases, famous speeches. In fact when he worked at Grumman he would spend his lunchtime studying the English language. He had so many books he built the most beautiful custom book cases to hold them.
    His love for music and art was insatiable. While I was in my office working on my computer he would be listening to some of his hundreds of CD’s and reading his cherished books. And then he started playing the harmonica. He took it everywhere and people would stand around and clap. In fact strangely, the further his dementia progressed, his harmonica quality increased. Robert was also an artist, had an excellent singing voice and was a great dancer.
    I am totally overwhelmed over the amount of comments people have sent to me of how kind, gentle, caring and talented Robert was. He touched so many hearts and I was so proud to be his love.
    I will miss him dearly. Our daughters and grandchildren will remember all the wonderful times they had. He was their Pop Pop. He will forever be in theirs hearts too. How lucky they were to have him.
    It is with such sadness I have to say goodbye to you my darling Robert. You were my rock. I will miss you so.
