I began this blog shortly after my mother was diagnosed with the disease mostly to clear my head. I was losing sleep, due to worry, fear, frustration. When Mom began forgetting I began to mourn losing her and actually began to distance myself from her. It was difficult for me to watch her slip away mentally over several years.
Mom passed away August 8, 2012 and now blogging is helping me come to terms with her physical death.

Photo from Mom's 60th birthday party,1997.
This is Mom and Dad from Mom's 60th birthday party. My Dad had a huge party for Mom at their home to not only celebrate her birthday but also the fact that she had lived 20 years beyond what doctors originally told our family.
The weather that day was perfect and Mom couldn't have been happier.
