Dad With Alzheimer’s Says To Leave Him In Driveway. When Garbage Man Walks Up She Collapses In Tears
‘I will never forget this moment’
Alzheimer’s is a terrible disease that robs a person of their memories and comfort and robs their loved ones of the person they once knew. While there are ups and downs along the journey, there is no denying that it is an incredibly difficult and often painful road.
Julie Bick has experienced this firsthand ever since her father was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s in 2017.

One of those friends is Harold, their garbage collector. Every Monday – garbage day – Julie’s dad goes to the curb to greet his friend.
Julie has seen firsthand how much care and kindness Harold shows – not just to her father, but to all of the people on his route.
“If we miss Harold when he comes, he will always go the extra mile to walk our cans back to our garage,” Julie said. “I hve heard other neighbors say that Harold will even knock on your door if the pickup day is around a holiday and you have forgotten to take your garbage out.”
One Monday morning, Julie was sitting on the front porch after a particularly rough night. She knew her dad could sense something was wrong.
“I knew he saw me the night before crying and it
