All We Need is A Happy Endind

My sister, Diane Farley, was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer’s disease at the age of 49. I have just published a book “All We Need Is A Happy Ending” which is the story of our 6 years together on this roller coaster ride. It is a story about unconditional love, both mine for her and the man she fell in love with in her last few years. It has gotten great reviews so far and an overwhelming response from those that are going through the same thing that we went through. They are saying how helpful they thought it would be for anyone who is living though this tragic disease.You can see a couple of pages below.

THE FIRST SIGNS
I’ve been a runner for 42 years. I do my best thinking when I’m out on my beach runs, and I’ve been doing that three times a week for the last seven years. I run five miles along the beautiful cliffs of Carlsbad, California—doing my running meditations and healing requests, offering my prayers, and solving problems related to both my work and personal life. It works more often than not, and helps me find peace. I think about everything I have to be grateful for on the first half of my run, and then I visualize what I want in the future on the last half.

On one of these runs, I visualized myself walking hand in hand with my divine male companion through our vineyard in Tuscany, somewhat like Meg Ryan and Kevin Klein in my all-time favorite movie, “French Kiss.” Since I adore Italy, my own “movie” takes place there instead of France.

All of a sudden, my visualization was interrupted with a new element; for me to be living in Italy, I had to make sure that my sister Diane was living happily somewhere, too. I started visualizing her finding her true soul mate and living in Del Mar, her ideal city, where she’d never have to worry about anything again.

How could we both afford to realize these visualizations and live happily ever after? Several ideas ran through my mind, but there was one I kept coming back to: perhaps we could tell Diane’s story. I’d write it, because she no longer could, and we’d use the proceeds to make our dreams come true! I visualized our book on the New York Times’ bestseller list. I believe everyone loves a book with a happy ending. What better happy ending then being able to beat and walk away from a horrible disease?

I was raised with the belief that I can do anything I set my mind to, thanks to my dad, Bud. I’d never written anything in my life, nor had I ever taken a writing class, but that didn’t stop me. I was on a mission with a great purpose.

This story began on St. Patrick’s Day 2004. My sister Diane, my best buddy, was 50 at the time and had invited my dad and me over for her traditional meal of corned beef and cabbage. Diane loved to cook and was very good in the kitchen. She was always neatly dressed, so I was a little surprised when she answered the door in a lounge dress with no bra and no makeup; I figured maybe she’d lost track of time and didn’t realize we’d be there so soon.

After a wonderful meal, we sat down to play a simple game of “Phase 10.” We’d played this card game for years and Diane often won, but she was having a very difficult time concentrating and figuring out the cards that night. We poked fun at her as she kept telling us she was suffering from “brain fogs” due to going through menopause. She’d been experiencing hot flashes the entire evening, which we also teased her about, all in good fun because that’s just how my family is.

Diane had been telling me about these “fogs” for some time, but I’d never seen her acting as totally confused as she was that night. It was frightening, because she couldn’t put the…… (the rest of the story can be found in the book)
