This spring we all gathered at the farm for family photos. Here we all are, minus one grandson who lives out of state. It was a bittersweet day. While we were all together, the fact that we really weren't, was sorely evident to all. But, we keep going on. One granddaughter will be married later this spring. A grandson will become a dad for the first time. Yes, we go on, but we're always thinking- "Gary would have loved him so!" or "He's just like his Dad." It's just hard!
Like so many other events this year, the Alzheimer's Walk will have a new look. Because we can't safely walk in groups of hundreds, each team will choose it's own walk route, with safe numbers participating, making it possible to stay distanced. Gary's Gang is excited to walk from the farm where we raised our kids to the 'home' farm where he was raised, just two miles away. Alzheimer's isn't waiting, and neither are we!
I ask you to join me. If you are able, please donate. Or join my Walk team. Better yet, form your own team. Let's work together in finding the first survivor of Alzheimer's disease!
Thank you for helping us advance Alzheimer's support, care and research!
