My dear mother, Betty, who passed on 8/24/15. Mom spent over 6 years battling various CNS and heart related medical problems, including Vascular Dementia.

Although her health was dire and precarious, she maintained a sense of humor and love for her family and friends.

Hospice care for nearly a year addressed all her complaints and our concerns.

We miss her and her absence is truly palpable in our home.

My hope is she reunited with my father and they are on a celestial cruise to some new land.

My dear momma, Ginny passed away Sept. 21, 2015 not quite 2 weeks ago. Mom was the love of my life. Her smile would light up a room and she was sweet, kind and so so funny. She struggled with dementia related psychosis and many medication issues later in life. We endured 15 hospitalizations or trips to the ER in the last 5 years of her life. She was extraordinarily resilient and rebounded from so many illnesses that seemed sure at first would take her. Still hard to believe she is actually gone, but I am at peace.

I read each name-and thought of each caregiver and family-and pray for each to heal and to carry on. We all are on the journey of life to death- and it's a comfort to know we can help each other.

My wonderful Bill-2/26/2015, after nine years. Only 68-a kind and loving man, husband father, brother and teacher. And today, when I am really feeling the loss because I realized I really truly am alone, I am thankful for this place to honor him!

Yes, I pop in every now and then. I wasn't actually aware of the existence of this forum, until I happened to see a mention of this thread in the Spouse & Partner forum. I've moved to Kansas City, and am living with my girlfriend, Sherrie. I'm rebuilding my life, one step at a time.

My loving mother Alyson, who passed the morning of September 6th, 2015 at the age of 72. She endured a lot of mental pain in the form of anxiety and agitation even before the Alzheimer's diagnosis. An RN, she was very compassionate and caring towards her patients and their families. An incredibly strong woman who raised two children comfortably on her own, she was a loving and dedicated mother. Anytime I had to write and essay in school about the person I most admired it was always my mother. I miss her everyday but take comfort in knowing she is resting and free from this devastating disease.

My dear love, Frankie, went home to heaven early Sunday morning on May 3rd of this year. He was a wonderful man who I had in my life for 20 years with the last 5 being cared for by others. But I was blessed to be able to be with him almost every day of those 5 years. I miss his gentle smile, his sparkling blue eyes, and I wish I could hold his hands and hear him tell me he loves me one more time. I know he is with God, in no pain,and has all his memories back and I will see him again.

So full of sorrow to be the one to bring this thread to the top dear husband entered his heavenly home the day before Thanksgiving, 3 years after Alzheimer's diagnosis.

I've been reading here for the last 3 years and you have all been so helpful! Because of you, I could stay a step ahead of him for most of the time. The last 6 months have been so difficult as so many of the caregivers who have helped me have lost their loved ones...a real epidemic!

We were married over 49 years and of course I will miss my husband dearly, but am so thankful, that for him, his journey has ended, and I am so thankful that I could care for him and accompany him, however difficult it became. I thank God for every minute of it!

My dear wife and best friend passed away November 21, 2015. I miss Kathy so much. I feel like I have no purpose, lost and incomplete. My head knows that Kathy is in a much better place and no more suffering but my heart hasn't caught up yet.

My dad, John Edward Held passed away unexpectedly on Nov 11, 2013. It is Veterans Day and I think it is appropriate. Dad was in WWII and I am very proud of him. I miss him so much. On Veterans Day I feel everyone pays their respect to my Dad and his generation. He will never be forgotten on that day, which makes me feel very proud and even a little happy.

My mother, Frances Dean, finally succumbed to the disease she struggled so hard with for 9 years on December 2, 2015. I feel blessed to have been able to have kept her at home with me to the end, as hard as it was. She lost her husband Thomas in the crash of a military transport plane in 1954. She never remarried. It comforts me to think that they are together at last after 62 years.

I lost my grandma Theresa Williams (1939-2016) earlier this morning. She was in the last stage of Alzheimer's. My mom got a call from my aunt after we got home from volunteering at an event, that my grandma had to be sent to the hospital because she wasn't eating. That was a sign that my grandma wasn't going to make it. She lived in a nursing home in Memphis, Tennessee. She is the reason why my mom and I advocate to end Alzheimer's. More importantly, educating the public at the health fairs about Alzheimer's disease & dementia. And I'm participating in the Houston walk to end Alzheimer's this November. My grandma is in better place now, but we will miss her very much. Please pray for me and my family. Let's end this terrible disease for the caregivers and families who have endured so much pain, stress and suffering. God bless and take care.
