The long road home

Please excuse me for a few days as I grieve and celebrate the passing of my mother from Alzheimer’s Disease yesterday.  It was 8 years ago today that she was diagnosed.

I want to say, “she lost her battle” with Alzheimer’s, but believe me that my mother was no match for it.  There’s no battle with an opponent like that.  Healthy?  Not good enough.  Active?  Sorry.  Alzheimer’s strips you from the inside out, leaving you like a withered pod.

Love each other — really well — while you can.
