A Sad Day Hits Close To Home

I learned last night that a friend's Mother passed away. His Mother was also a victim of dementia. I talked to him on the phone a bit ago and he is doing well, but I know there is more to it. My hat goes off to him!

This strikes so close to home, not only because Mom is suffering from Alzheimer's, but she hasn't been doing that well the past couple days. It seems to run in spurts, but I don't think she will even know who I am again unless I explain it to her. Which I've done the past few days. Today, Mom couldn't even remember her last name.

I'm ready, I can face it, but in the same breath, I'm not . . .

I need coffee and a cigar. . .
