DEMENTIA STOLE SO MUCH OF OUR MOTHER FROM US, KNOWING THAT SHE WAS CARED FOR DURING THAT TIME AND THE SUPPORT THAT WE RECEIVED, MADE OUR LAST MONTHS WITH OUR MOTHER SO VERY SPECIAL. THE FAMILY WILL CELEBRATE THE LIFE OF THIS WONDERFUL WOMAN, SIMPLY BUT WITH MUCH LOVE AND THE SHARING OF PRECIOUS MEMORIES AT THE HOME OF HER DAUGHTER FRIDAY EVENING. WE WOULD ASK THAT YOU REMEMBER THE ELDERLY THAT RESIDE IN NURSING FACILITIES. THESE SPECIAL PEOPLE, OFTENTIMES, DO NOT HAVE FAMILIES AND WOULD BENEFIT GREATLY FROM YOUR TIME.

One time Cydne and I were staying the weekend with Billie in San Angelo, I slept late Saturday morning and when I woke up Billie made me some eggs and toast and bacon, fixed my plate and proceeded to clean up the mess and put the dishes away then she looked at Cydne and said well did want something lol. She loved me.
