poignantly done, compassionately understood as best as one "outside" is able, I'm sure

My friend relishes opportunity to tell of the special mementoes in her apartment that mark special times in her life.

I think it comforts her to recall things clearly, even if they were long ago.

Thanks for sharing, Paul.

Whether on the shoal or on the shore,
I'll seek the lighthouse evermore.

Imagine the fear they must have inside knowing something is wrong but cannot do a thing about it. I remember the fear in my mother's eyes when we were told of her illness. But when doctors say the mind is gone I wonder. Because she knew her pet name I had given years ago. I would walk into the hospital room the last week of her death and say "Hi Toots how are you doing." She would respond with her eyes. For she could no longer talk or move.

VAS~~~So much is unknown about this terrible disease. Like you say one minute their minds are perfectly normal and the next totally different.I have a brother that although doesn't have Alzhiemers his mind works the same way, he can remember things from when he was a child, but can't remember yesterday.I understand the doctors are making great progress in a cure for this disease. Thanks for reading and sharing with me your poem...Paul

Bonniej~~~ Iwill search for and read you poem. I can't imagine what your family and your mother went through, but I know it was hard for everyone.Thanks for taking time to read and for your caring reply...Paul
