In Honor of Alzheimer's Day...

disjointed pictures
fragmented bits of this life
scattered through my day

This post is PURPLE in honor of those that I have known, and those still suffering from Alzheimer's disease.  Please find something purple to wear to remember and honor those you have also known.   Thanks!

Thank you for telling me this. My grandmother passed away two years ago from Alzheimers. I like the quote and purple background.

alzheimer is so hard - also for the relatives and friends when you lose the person before they are really gone

Terrible, terrible disease; your words capture its frustrations very well. Such horror.

My Aunt worked for many years in an Alzheimer's ward, I have visited her there often, it's so sad to see how young people are in that ward.

Coffee will do. As I ponder over your post, sad, and hopeful.

Your words really strike a chord in me. My mom just passed away last December--she had Alzheimer's. I miss her so much.
