Don:

that was very touching...i had to keep from tearing up here at work!

My grandmother has alzheimers and since my mother died at a very young age, my sisters, who live with her, have been taking care of her. it reminded me a lot of what happens in that house...

thank you for sharing that!

<BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-title">quote:</div><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-content">My grandmother has alzheimers </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

Mine on my Dad's side did too. For about the last 10 years or so of her life she called me "Eddie". (Her brother who was killed in WW-II that they say I look a lot like) She knew who Cathy was and our two youngest daughters. (Our youngest had not been born yet) Would always ask when "Don" was going to come with them to visit. (I usually went by myself) One day I made the mistake of all of us going at once. (Cathy, the kids and myself) Man you talk about confuse her!!! SHe asked me "Eddie what are you doing here with Donalds Wife?" with a VERY confused look on her face. Needless to say I always went to visit her by myself after that.

But thru it all I always looked back to the "Good times" I had with her before the Alzheimers developed. I cherish those memories to this day.

At her funeral my two cousins got VERY ticked off at me when I told them she now was not confused and at peace in a better place with Grandpaw. (Who died before I was born, so I never knew)

Being the "Shy type" who would NEVER speak his mind.... I unloaded on them with BOTH barrels! They still are ticked about that now almost ten years later...... Oh well ...............

I am now starting to see the early signs with my Dad.......... But as long as he is physicaly able, we are still gonna fish and so stuff together. Gotta enjoy the time I have with him while I can......
