No good. Do you know if he was found near Deakin or in his car elsewhere?

That is so sad. I worry about this sort of thing every time my Dad jokes about getting lost around Downer. Yet he refuses to carry a phone or a map. And there is just no reasoning with someone who can’t even realise they have a problem.

Alzheimer’s is a total bitch.

Well I hope at the very least it was a peacful passing. I shouldnt speculate, but maybe he intended to go up there and pass on by himself surrounded by nature? I wouldnt mind going out like that.

I would much rather that then he simply drive of into the bush by mistake. As always, it is the family who will be heartbroken today.
