The Lack of a Penny is a story about Love, Compassion, and a single Penny. A Penny can represent the funds to see a movie or conquer the disease of Alzheimer’s. In one case a Penny would have solved the problem but in the other case the lack of many Pennies to find a cure for a devilish disease that causes such grief and heart-ace. This is such a story.

The book was written after my wife’s death with Alzheimer’s and my experience of being a caregiver for six years. My mother also died with the disease and the story begins with her and my experience of the lack of a penny.
