We are so excited about our Longest Day, Memory Mile event!
Our day will start at Westville Lake/Dam (Southbridge, MA) waking their beautiful grounds; then we will move to Hyland Orchard (Fiskdale, MA) to continue our walk along their scenic path through the orchard. We will end our day with bands and celebration at Hyland Orchard.
We encourage anyone who can't make it to Massachusetts for our event, to walk their own Memory Mile, wherever they may live, and post a picture to our Facebook page!
Our reason to walk is our Mom... please read our story below.
In October 2018, our Mom, Weezie, passed...
We celebrate the life of Louise, Weezie, Peterson. After a long struggle with Alzheimer’s, she died peacefully on October 25th with her children by her side. As with everything in her life; she battled Alzheimer’s with courage and grace, never losing her sense of appreciation or gratitude.
Anyone who knew Weezie, knew that family was her number one priority. Her strong love of family can be seen in the time she spent with and the values she instilled in her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
She was a genuine person who left a positive, compassionate impression with all those she met. Weezie gave unconditional love and loyalty to family and friends; and workmates were drawn to her because of her caring smile and warm nature.
So we celebrate this amazing woman’s life and the lessons learned. Her spirit lives on through all those her loved her. She will be greatly missed.
Cathy and Donna
So many of us have been touched by Alzheimer’s. We’ve seen how a parent, grandparent, loved one or friend, lose their memories, cognitive abilities, and the vibrant person they once were. We witness the struggles they go through and help them with the challenges they face. We grieve the loss of that special person and learn to accept and love the new person they’ve become. For us, Alzheimer’s has touched our Mom, Weezie.
We chose walking as our team event because walking was always something our Mom loved to do and something she now cannot.
We walk for Weezie… What about you?
