This was my post from a couple of years ago… very appropriate for today. Congratulations to Pat Bowlen and the Broncos for their Super Bowl 50 victory.
My wife, Jamie works for the company, Atria Senior Living. They manage senior living communities… retirement and assisted living. She is in sales, but also writes for the Atria blog. This was her post from yesterday… it is fitting for this audience as well…
On Wednesday, the Denver Broncos released a statement indicating the owner of their franchise, Pat Bowlen, is stepping down as a result of his diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease. Bowlen has been living with the disease for a few years, but chose to keep this private.

In reality, Mr. Bowlen IS. He IS still very much alive. His family cares about him, loves him, and, I imagine, finds ways to adjust to his memory impairment on a daily basis.
