Happy Anniversary, Mom and Dad. I envision you reunited and restored, celebrating together in heaven––Dad, your arm is protectively around Mom's shoulders, her head is snuggled into the crook of your neck.
Each chapter of Alzheimer's Daughter begins with one of your letters, showing your love written in your own words––the beginning of the devotion which allowed you to hold tight until life's end, even as Alzheimer's devoured and ravaged.
I think people can learn so much from your letters. Mom, here is your first letter to Dad. It's obvious you were nervous to write since you weren't dating yet and Dad had just left for the Army.
This letter was the beginning of a relationship lasting 66 years. Happy Anniversary, Mom and Dad!
