I loved this story! From beginning to end, this character came alive for me through vivid, specific descriptions (I could just see the frail man struggling at his piano playing with the one shaking, fumbling hand) and delightfully witty dialogue (loved the character's comment about his having a shake with his fries!)

I can relate to this as there are two special people in my own life with Parkinson's (one a close family member, another a good friend). This account moved me and gave me hope. Thanks for sharing!

My Mom had PD for about 16 years. Your brother is indeed a hero. Keep on "singing his praises."

What a wonderful, moving tribute to your brother. God bless him.
This is very touching. My father had Parkinson's Disease. You described its symptoms well. Your brother is to be commended for his positive attitude. He's truly an usung hereo.
