Alzheimer's Disease Releases Couple to Love Again
ANDREA SEABROOK, Host:
We end tonight's show with an essay sent to us by Link Nicoll. She was moved to share this story after hearing the news this week that Sandra Day O'Connor's husband, who suffers from Alzheimer's, has begun a romance with another woman at his assisted living center.
M: I always wondered why my parents got together in the first place. Now, I could see it right in front of me.
SEABROOK: Link Nicoll is a photographer who lives in Alexandria, Virginia.

SEABROOK: I'm Andrea Seabrook. Have a great evening.
