Mary Lynn I am so sorry for the loss of your mother. I know how you feel as I just lost mine two weeks ago. You don't want them to leave but you don't want them to stay. Have peace that she is with the Lord and you will see her again. She is free from pain and that horrible disease. In the end the Alzheimer's did not win. The Lord won. He received her and the battle is won. She is happy and walking the streets of gold. Thinking and praying for you.
Love You, Debby

A good part of my life has now passed. Mary & I were very close earlier in our lives. She had a hard life raising the kids as mostly a single mother. God bless you Mary . Rest in peace. Walt
