I have lost 2 grandparents to this disease. It is heart breaking to look at a person who has taught me about family, life and all of the simple amazing things life has to offer and they don't know who you are. Forgotten all of the limits you tested as a child with them. The laughs with the whole family on the back porch erased. Them consoling you through life's trials. Or to see the heartache in your strong Grandfathers eyes when his wife doesn't recognize him. I fear this disease will wipe away my hard earned memories, funny moments, love found and friends made. Anything helps. Please. Help me remember.
