I am Linda Gonzalez-Hensgen and am very grateful for my best friend, Rosemary Landa Medlin creating this team in my moms memory.  Otilia Gonzalez, battled with dementia for the last 12 years of her life. Prior to that, she was a loving, dedicated homemaker that never missed a day that she did not make fresh flour tortillas.  She loved hosting family dinners, especially during holidays. She loved to sing and lead prayer group meetings at church.  Because of dementia, we grieved her passing at many different levels.  The initial grief came when we began to see the slow but inevitable decline, and the helpless feeling that we could not do a thing to stop it.  I tried to care for her as best I could, but eventually had to place her in an Alzheimer's facility; grieving again and crying many tears on the day I faced that decision.   Actually, both of my parents battled this condition. If we don't do something to change the course of the disease, I could follow in their footsteps; my family could be battling this disease all over again.  Those are not the footsteps I want to follow. So, on October 23, I will be following the footsteps of the many walkers and fundraisers who will participate in the El Paso Walk to end Alzheimers.  Please help us honor my mom's memory.  No amount is too small; it will all help us meet our goal.
