I liked this very much. I worked for many years in nursing homes, and I felt like I was back there when I read your entry. I remember a few folks who were that far into dementia and yet still feisty. And I remember those who could still play the piano and sing even when they didn't know their own family.

Well written
I enjoyed your story very much. The dialogue interspersed with the feisty old lady's thoughts made for interesting reading. Excellently done.
Oh my! This had a sad, but bittersweet kind of touch to it. I loved the character of the daughter and truly felt for that of the mother. I'm glad that she remember the 'most important things'. I'm especially glad to read something this fresh and new. Nice job! ^_^

this read very smoothly from mother to daughter. a twist of humor in a sad situation. Very well written.
