Traveling South

We'll be heading south on Saturday. Unfortunately not for pleasure. Sam's mother died early this evening. An Alzheimer's patient, she'd been in the hospital with pneumonia for a few days.

Born December 2, 1913 - she made it to 95.

Her sweetheart of a husband died in 1996.

Once again, they are strolling along hand in hand.

Sounds like you have good memories to hold onto. I'm sure you know from experience, they bring you comfort. Be careful in your travels.

Sherry, I am so sorry. It is hard losing a parent and with Alzheimer's as well. It is a terrible disease. Travel safely, my prayers to you and your family.
