Welcome to My Personal Page
“I am fooling only myself when I say my mother exists now only in the photograph on my bulletin board or in the outline of my hand or in the armful of memories I still hold tight. She lives on beneath everything I do. Her presence influenced who I was, and her absence influences who I am. Our lives are shaped as much by those who leave us as they are by those who stay. Loss is our legacy. Insight is our gift. Memory is our guide.” ~Hope Edelman
A quote I like to share is..."To care for those who once cared for us is one of the highest honors."
This has been a long journey for my mom and our family. What started as occasional memory loss, repetitive conversation, eventually led to complete caring for her. How she once cared for us, we now cared for her. 10 years. My dad took care of her for 9 years. We wouldn't have made it this far without his commitment in taking care of her. Brian, myself, and the rest of our family helped as much as we could. It was hard emotionally and hard work, but I was raised well...both my parents instilled in me the value of working hard. It was worth it, we were able to care for my mom at home until June of 2016, we then moved her to a memory care home. It was an honor for me and my family to care for my mom for 9 years.
