I would like to share this article with some of you. One of the most difficult things I have had to deal with in my adult life was watching my mother deteriorate before my very eyes. This woman, whom I looked up to and cherished for my whole life, was suffering in a way that I could only imagine. It broke my heart the day she looked me straight in the eye and told me she really didn't know who I was. I know that there are some of you, my friends, that are dealing with this in your own lives. Perhaps this article will help you to connect with what your mom or dad or sister or brother is going through. Alzheimer's is a horrific disease...and I pray I never have to experience what my mother did. It was the only time in my life I saw that she was truly afraid...scared. No one could reach her toward the end. She was unrecognizable even to her own children.

This is just my real life feelings.
I treasure the memories I had with my mom.
I am glad she was able to meet Chloe and one of my favorite quotes of hers when she was toward the end of her battle with this terrible disease, "What a Funny Little Dog".
That's my Chloe!!
