    Patti Davis, the daughter of Ronald and Nancy Reagan, writes about losing her father to Alzheimer's disease, saying goodbye in stages, and watching the progression of a disease that steals what is most precious: a person's memory. Past and present come together in this illuminating portrait of grief, of a man, a disease, and a girl and her father.

    If you could sum up The Long Goodbye in three words, what would they be?

    Insightful and Heartwarming


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Patti, because she was able to express so well the truth of her own growth through a most difficult disease, Alzheimer's. This is the story of her personal relationship with her father who was inflicted with the disease and who also happened to be, arguably the most influential and beloved President of the United States in the last century!


    Which character – as performed by Staci Snell – was your favorite?

    Patti Davis, daughter of Ronald Reagan


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I cried, because it hits a personal chord for me as I care for my husband, age 65, who also has Alzheimer's Disease. We have known each other since high school and have been married 44 years. He is and always has been the love of my life and best friend!


    Any additional comments?

    Alzheimer's is one of the most devastating diseases of our time! There is no cure and little hope of a cure anytime soon. Death will occur within around ten years if not sooner. While it clearly affects families dealing with the disease up close and personal, it will ultimately take its' toll on everyone as those suffering will grow from the current five million in the US alone to over 20 million worldwide by 2013.
