My sister Sandi was at the best part of her life when she was diagnosed with Alzheimer's Disease. It is hard to think of anything she could not do and do extremely well. She could make anything taste wonderful. She could create beauty and comfort with yarn and masterpieces with her sewing machine. She made a loving home and, with her husband Albert, shared it without a care. And then, one day, she couldn't. I didn't pay enough attention at first because she was masterful at hiding her symptoms. Eventually, she was unable to do the many things she so enjoyed. We talked often about her disease. I remember telling her that it was okay if she didn't remember who l was, as long as she remembered that I loved her. I asked her once if she remembered me and she answered " no, but l know you love me"
I will always love her.
