Dementia – he took his life

A few years ago, friends called to tell me he had taken his life. I spoke with him the day before he carried out his decision. He seemed fine to me. 

Found out later he had recently received a diagnosis of dementia, probably the result of alzheimer’s disease.  I think of him often.
