Last week my dad, an Alzheimer's patient, went on an adventure in south Fargo. He was missing from his home for three hours. Needless to say, we were frantic. Thank you to an angel named Jessica Osland, who opened her door to Dad, put him in her car, and attempted to get him where he thought he wanted to go.

Thank you also to the staff at Bennigan's for questioning Dad until they determined who to contact, with the result being he was returned home.

Thank you also to the Fargo police officer who took his disappearance seriously and joined in the search.

We have wonderful citizens in Fargo who helped my dad get home and yet allowed him to maintain his dignity.
