Thanks for sharing!! My dad was diagnosed with Alzheimer's a few months before his untimely passing. As much as I'd like to have him back in my life for real (I didn't get to say goodbye), what matters the most is that he didn't have to suffer for long.

Love this…. My mom went to her Heavenly home May 22, 2014 after battling dementia for many years. It is a terrible thing to watch your loved one suffering from this

Amazing, my mom passed in August of this year from this horrid disease, all we could do was hold her hand to let her know she was not alone and tell her I love you

How wonderful is that? I write poetry for my wife who has Alzheimer's and is in a care home. Sure wish I could add the music. She loves to listen to the musicians who come into the home to entertain. And how wonderful is that? Music might just be God's greatest gift to humankind.
