every year i set up my page for the walk to end alzheimer's i struggle with this part. my granma was such an amazing lady, i don't think i could ever do how much she meant to me justice with these words.
i miss her every day. i (without asking) took a painting from my house that came from granma and papas house and put it up in my apartment. its a painting of three raccoons and a pig with a black mask on trying to blend in. its called 'just one of the guys'. everyone always has something to say about it. what is it. why do i have it. and my response to them is always the same. it was granmas and it reminds me of her. so i took it. every day i look at it i think about her. and thats a good enough reason for me.
i don't have to tell anyone how much alzheimers sucks. we all know it sucks. it causes someone to leave us even when they are still here. nothing is worse than looking into someones eyes and seeing nothing.
i will spend every day. every month. every year. for the rest of my life doing something to help in some small way find new treatments, preventions and one day a cure for alzheimers.
Thank you for helping us advance Alzheimer's support, care and research!
