The people I'm walking for:
My Grammie is the glue that holds our family together. She has raised me since I was in 5th grade & has shaped me into the woman I am today. She would always call me her sous-chef in the kitchen & try to teach me her signature recipes like "Spicy Meat" and "Grammie Rolls". Her holiday sweaters were the best, but my favorite outfit of hers was the over-sized Mickey Mouse shirt that she would wear as a nightgown. She loved having a glass of wine (with ice cubes) with her dinner every night & hiding her cookies from my Grandpa - but she would always share her hiding spots with me and Ty. We could never get away with anything growing up because she was always one step ahead of us. She currently lives at an assisted living community where she can get all the care and attention she deserves as her dementia progresses. I'm looking forward to the end of this pandemic so I can give her the world's biggest hug.
My Nana was feisty. She had firecracker red nails & a jewelry box full of accessories. There wasn't a bowl of ice cream or puzzle that she couldn't finish. Whenever I visited her house, we'd have Ritz crackers and an ice-cold Pepsi together. She loved watching Dancing with the Stars and Wheel of Fortune during dinner. We had a special bond because her maiden name Dyson is also my middle name. Even though she's no longer with us, we still carry on her legacy of Nana Cake at all family gatherings.
Please consider donating in honor of these special women who have made a tremendous impact on my life and for all the other brave souls that are affected by Alzheimer's.
Thank you for helping us advance Alzheimer's support, care and research!
