What a beautiful story that drew me in to Wai Puo's life and her joyful song. Keep writing. You showed here how Alzheimers can still bring life lessons.
A beautiful poem at the end of the story. My favorite line in the story: Wai-Puo's soprano [voice] caressed the silence with its delicate fingers. I liked the lyrical style of your writing.

Research has shown that people with Alzheimer's can still express feelings through singing when words have left them.
You put the poem together rather well after living your experience.

Great piece.
Congratulations on ranking 1st in your level and 16 overall. The highest rankings can be found on the message boards.
