This book is a cautionary tale for advocates and caregivers, as the first-hand accounts and memories are lost to death. Very soon, the only link we will have to the lessons of the past will be works like You’ll like it here. As direct care evolves, it is my hope that Ed's work and writings will help caregivers avoid repeating the sins of the past. --David Vitkus
