This was a favorite entry for me--such wonderful descriptions. The emotional impact brought me to tears.
A favorite aunt of mine had dementia. Your story brought back many memories of visiting with her in the nursing home. Very nice!
Enjoyed how you told this story, simply yet elegantly. A fitting tribute to Aunt B.
Beautifully written, with some particularly memorable phrases concerning her hair and voice.
Nicely done.

Great vivid descriptions! Good job!
Touching personal narrative. Unique perspective on topic. :)
Beautiful. You did a very good job of bridging the distance between past and present.
This piece brings me to tears, not only because it is so beautifully told, but it also teaches me something. Aunt Beatrice could be my own mother... Now I'll try harder to understand these hard to interpret but precious attempts to communicate. Thank you so much for helping bridge this gap in my understanding for me. Congratulations too on your win and on your great writing talent!
