A wonderful tribute to your sister. This is a reality for too many today and often times, it just isn't possible for a solution like this. Touches of emotion and feeling through this piece, thanks for sharing.
Tears started flowing at "Lynn's mind traveled back in time..." As our own parents age, this is some of the reality we will be facing, hopefully with the same dignity and grace that your sister if affording your mom. Well told.
This was such a sensitive, tender story. Not only was it well-written, but also a good reminder of what those committed care-takers experience on a daily basis. I'm sure your sister will be blessed by this tribute.
This is a very tender tribute that hit close to home. My own father-in-law died of Alzheimer's about a year ago. It's a very difficult disease. Thank you for sharing this. God bless you.
Hey Brenda, the highest rankings were just posted on the forums, congrats on placing 7th in Level 3! Awesome job, you can view the rankings here:
A loving and sensitive look at this very sad and frustrating situation. A wonderful tribute to your sister, and to every person who lovingly devotes their take as a caretaker for a loved one. Well done.

Thanks by the way for your kind words on my "phew!" entry.
