My husband and I had 42 wonderful years together ❤. We did have our bad moments . But the good times were really good . He had dementia for 5 years.
On December 5th 2020 he had a fall & broke his left leg and pelvic . I couldn't handle him anymore. I put him in a place called Tranquil Living 2. They treated him & all the residents & their family members with dignity & respect .
