Conrad and Evelyn

Conrad's Corner host Conrad Balliet and his square dancing partner Evelyn fell in love in later life. She was in her eighties and he in his 70s. Their love was youthful, adventurous and amorous. But then Evelyn started getting simple words mixed up. Conrad saw the signs. He took care of her as he was losing her to Alzheimer's. Aileen LeBlanc tells a very personal story of her friends Conrad and Evelyn.

Here's an audio slide show of Conrad and Evelyn's time together featuring Conrad reading a poem by Roy Croft.
