They were days I could see she was still in there, somewhere. That spark in her eye would be there and I just knew she understood. I often watched mom while dad worked or had to be out of town. I bathed her, fed her and took care of her intimate issues. Mom would try and help me around the house. I'd give her a rag and she would dust around until she got bored or her attention waned and then she would stand at the door, hand on the door knob and just walk in place. I often wondered where she went in her own mind. What she was thinking or feeling. Emotionally wearing but not any harder than dad had. Dad lived this every day, 24-7. I am walking in moms memory to make sure no other husband or daughter has to watch their loved one live the slow good-bye. Won't you please donate to help me reach my goal of $1,000? Thank you so much for your grace and generosity.
