I just told my husband that CH died yesterday, he was shocked.
Mr. Heston used to come into Gemco all the time in Woodland Hills California.
He'd buy this or that, usually always with his son Fasier. They'd be in their tennis regalia, shorts and tee shirts and were ever so nice. No "I'm better than you" at all with him, very nice and handsome man. Just a regular Joe while shopping. Plus, really, no one bothered him which may be why so many chose to shop there, they didn't get hounded by star struck people.

Alzheimer's disease is so tragic. Many years ago worked with a county society that tried to get folks to take care of the victims and let the main care givers a short break.

Charlton Heston and Ronald Reagan had the disease and were brave enough to state the fact.

How would anyone of us like to know we were going to become mere nasty and incompetent shells of ourselves. The process must be torment to those who know what is in store for themselves.

Gosh, I have dealt with many things in my life, but not Alzheimer's.

I hope some smart guy can figure out how to prevent the disease.

How sad. I always loved Charlton Heston. He always seemed so genuine.

I suppose he was one of a very few celebrities that we felt like we knew. Of course, we didn't, but he was so genuine and naturally nice.

RIP, Mr. Heston. He was an iconic personality and tireless crusader for the 2nd Amendment at a time when most of Hollywood was agitating against the right to keep and bear arms. It's sad that Alzheimers cast a shadow over the waning years of the life of a great man but he seems to have had a very good life, and certainly a lot of it- he was 84!

He loved his life, what more could we ask for. May he rest in peace.

I heard about this today, I was thinking of renting his Planet of the Apes series of movies in honor of him.
