Very touching. I love the characters portrayed in this entry. Great story.
This is so beautiful yet it terrifies me in many ways. I don't think I'm afraid of getting a form of dementia, but I'm afraid that the people I have loved my whole life will seem like someone else and with every glimpse into reality is another painful reminder for the Alzheimer's patient. You did a wonderful job turning a serious and horrible illness into a wonderful love story.

Wow! We just put my mother in a care facility a week ago today. She has dementia and when we visit, she doesn't remember who some of us are. The saddest thing is how frustrating it is for her as she struggles to remember. Your story was very touching. God bless!

Very touching story for me as well, as I am now going through the forgetting with my dad. Dementia is such a heartbreaking disease! Well done story!!!
