    Alzheimer's is a horrible disease to watch someone go through. My uncle, who passed a few years ago, had it. It is what made me interested in neuroscience, and studying degenerative memory.

    My condolences to his family and friends.

    Not only was he a great American leader, he was an amazing family man. I had the honor of meeting him a few times at family gatherings and he had such a wonderful heart. He will be missed.

    You would think you could get his name right Mario, considering it's all over the news today. The one time you don't cut and paste, you get it wrong.

    It's Robert Sargent "Bobby" Shriver III
