Memories of the last game i spent with my dad before he passed

 3 replies

I remember that day like it was yesterday. Dads Alzheimer‘s was getting worse and we wanted to go to just one more game. Living in San Diego made it tough to get back home but im glad i did. We got to the stadium very early that day around 5 A.M. I had to drive because dad couldn’t remember how to get to the stadium even though he had been there over 60 times. I parked in our normal spot and tail gated with mom and dads long time tailgate friends. It was a great time and i will never forget.

Dad reminded me so much of Marty Schottenheimer not just in looks but his attitude towards life and his illness. I see Marty i see dad.

Chiefs fans never realize how much of a impact they have on others in reality. That day was one of the best days of my life. Thank you to all in attendance that day and thanks to the ones in the parking lot who made dad and mom feel like family for so many years.

It’s great that you have that one last great moment with your dad. To many of us get caught up in the rat race of life and forget to appreciate those little moments that actually change things and create memories.

My grandmother had Alzheimer’s, so I have seen this disease up close like yourself. I’m glad you got to spend a great game and time together with him. We should all strive to spend every game and moment with each other like it’s our last, makes the memories all the better. Thanks for sharing.
