When we told my mom that they believed she had Alzheimer's, she said,, Nothing will happen to me that my Heavenly Father doesn't allow. Her confidence in her Savior was just part of her legacy to everyone around her. So we all walked that road of uncertainty together, watching everyday for God's grace in the midst of it all. His faithfulness carried us. Even with many changes, including the isolation of covid, my mom's love for Jesus and the people around her never faltered. On October 29 2020, she saw her Savior face-to-face, no longer shackled by Alzheimer's. We miss her and her joyful heart so very much. But i love to think of her right now, hands raised in praise, being with her Savior, having the time of her life with loved ones - including Larry's dad, who died of AD 18 years ago - friends, and brothers and sisters in Christ!!!
My heart breaks for those who continue to battle, not only the losses of Alzheimer’s, but also the difficult environment around us. God give us grace and endurance. While He is our ultimate hope, I feel He has already used the research and efforts of the Alzheimer's Association to bring help and relief. Thats why I am participating in the Walk to End Alzheimer's, hoping to raise funds and awareness to advance the fight against this disease — funds that allow the Alzheimer’s Association® to provide 24/7 care and support while accelerating critical research. If you are able, I ask you to please make a donation or even register as a participant and start your own fundraising. With God's help, together we fight to end Alzheimer’s disease.
Thank you for helping advance Alzheimer's support, care and research.
