So, as I update my page it has been 16 months since we lost mom…at the young age of 68. It pained me to change the photo on my page…it was one of mom walking with Claire and Elaine in 2016. There is no updated photo of mom, Claire and Elaine to share. And that simply…breaks…my…heart. I think of my mom every day…sometimes multiple times. Mom enters my thoughts during mundane tasks, when I am frustrated, or when my kids do something I know she would have love to seen. My absolute favorite, though, is when one of “grandma Jane’s” songs (as my kids phrase it) comes on the radio. We have all come to believe and take comfort in the way she still reaches us.
In life's journey, I know we all have the same heartache, heartbreak and loss as what I live now. There is no good way to lose a loved one…but the way Alzheimer’s strips a person of everything makes it absolutely unbearable. So I walk, raise awareness, raise money and soon hope to volunteer regularly to fight this disease that seems to confuse us all.
Please join us, in walking or donating…the more the merrier for both! And thank you, all of you, for your continued love and support!
Thank you for helping us advance Alzheimer's support, care and research!
