"I will remember...

"Promise me you'll always remember, you're braver than you believe,
stronger than you seem,
and smarter than you think.
But the most important this is,
even if we're apart, I'll always be with you."

-Christopher Robin to Winnie-the-Pooh

"Be Brave"

Donning a Bravelet supporting the "Cure Alzheimers Fund".  Missing you dad.  Though he was robbed of his own memories, HIS memory lives on with me and those who loved him.

"The Laugh"

  9. Touching words, Kath ... The Alzheimer's decease, robbing ones memories ~ must be indescribable psingul for the person and the close family ... Hoping that the research will find a way to stop the development of the decease, setting it stand by for as long as possible. A wonderful photo of your father ... Smitten by his laughter!

  10. I bet your Father had a beautiful laugh to go with that smile.

  11. What a lovely tribute to your dad.. That's a great photo to remember him by.

  12. Alzheimers is such a heartbreaking disease. My mother-in-law has it. The other three of our parents are gone, and, in essence, she is gone as well. She sits and colors in coloring books and talking nonsense. My only comfort is that she actually seems happier now that she's long past the stage where she knew something was wrong when she wasn't remember things.

  13. A lovely poem and a great tribute to your dad, alzheimers is such an awful disease for everyone involved #LTTL

  14. What a wonderful post for your dad's memory.
