This was both lovely and sad at the same time. The love we have for our parents deepens as we see them going through changes such as Susan and Ron's mother is going through. It is so sad when we see our parents becoming frailer and start forgetting things and slipping away from us..

You've handled the topic well, and have courageously given us a glimpse into your own personal heartbreak - thank you.

I'm so glad this story had a good ending. I know many that aren't so good. Thanks for introducing us to this new way to use GPS.
I relate to this. After my Dad "escaped", the nursing home installed an alarm system and key-pad door locks. You have stirred some memories for sure. I enjoyed your story.

A difficult issue opened up with clarity and sensitivity, with all th e emotions of love, guilt, blame and relief.

Great opening, great job keeping suspense hanging throughout. Love the GPS tracking devices. I hear some people even use them on their pets.
