Descent

One of the most moving things I have seen recently.

The weekly photo challenge theme prompted me to post this even though it’s a video rather than a photo. A man’s descent into Alzheimer’s and his farewell through song celebrating the love and life he’s had, a life and people he will soon not miss as his Alzheimer’s makes that not possible.

My heart goes out to his family and others who are losing someone to Alzheimer’s – and to those like us who in the end lose someone very precious – for us, our mum.

  1. So bittersweet. My first mother-im-law had it, still thought my husband was going to school and kept packing a case and saying someone was picking her up to take her home to her parent’s farm. Thanks for sharing the video, Susi.
