Happy 79th, Mama

Alzheimer's disease continues its destructive path.
Although you don't remember me, I remember you.
You are loved, precious Mama.
Happy 79th birthday.

  5. What a lovely birthday tribute to your mother. It's so hard as our parents age. It's wonderful that you are able to remember your mother as she once was--and at the same time appreciate her both then and now.
