Craig, I am glad you were able to spend time with your mother and have the experience that you did. Even though she may not have known who you and your son were, it looked like the three of you were having a blast. There are many terrible diseases that can rob us of our loved ones and of minds, but most usually can't take away what's in the heart. Life is short, Enjoy it!!!!

Wow, Craig, what a great story and testimony! My father is dealing with Alzheimer's also. I plucked a little with him on Christmas, and he got out his C harmonica. Was so happy to play it, said he hasn't played it in awhile.
Music really does work magic!

What a great Christmas gift, and post.
Alzheimers is sad. What a great way to fight back.
My wife's mom, Elsie, now 80, is another victom. Elsie refused to move away from her brother, also 81,
and would not accept help.
Uncle Art passed on now, 10 days ago, and my wife, Cathie, flew down to San Diago, that's 1,200 miles
away, to finally bring Elise back . We will be able to place her in a very good home based care facility
a few miles away from here. Cathie will at last be able to help keep watch on her mom for a while.
When she is up here and settled in, we will be sure to bring some of our home made music and love.

Thanks for the pictures and story. Alzheimers is indeed a thief. You were able to give mom back some of the stuff (music and family) that she has likely done without. May God bless you both.
Blessings & Prayers,

Sweet story Craig,
Can't remember if we told you, but we are going through the same thing with Joe's mom. I'm so glad she was able to enjoy the music. What a gift, indeed. Hope you both are well. Blessings in the New Year.

That was so beautiful, thank you. Alzheimers, dementia... they are all thieves indeed. The worst kind. I watched my grandmother die before my eyes over 8 long years. The hardest thing was the vacant look in her eyes. But it didn't steal her spirit. When God puts His spirit in a person, it stays there and will shine through when all else is gone and stripped away. She passed on last year and now suffers no more. I miss her terribly but I know I'll see her again! God bless.
