My cousin, Gary Brown, wrote a beautiful, haunting song about his experience watching as his mother, Valda Brown, declined with Alzheimer's and ultimately passed away. As I my mother lives with Alzheimer's, the song comes to my mind often.

It can be found on youtube.com at this link:

 These are the lyrics: 

 All the way down
All the way down
I knew
It would be as hard
As anything can be
But I didn't know
There'd be so many things
I'd have to decide for you
I didn't know
I'd have to fight so hard
Just so you could be ok
Till the end
But I promised
All the way down
All the way down
I knew
How much I'd miss you
When it was over
But I didn't know
I wouldn't have the strength
At the end
I didn't know
I'd forget how you used to be
How full of life you were
All those years
But I promised

Oh my I cried my eyes out when I read the lyrics and then listened to the song. It is everything I felt and went through.  I promised my mom I would take care of her and I did.  The part "But I didn't know there'd be so many things I'd have to decide for you... I didn't know I'd have to fight so hard just so you could be ok." That really hit me. It was so hard and I did it alone.  She died peacefully at home 28 days ago.  I miss her but am glad I did everything I could for her.
