Remembering

I've been spending a little time preparing to repost and hopefully enhance my blog entry remembering Sue Kim Hanson.  Sue, along with her husband Peter and daughter Christine were murdered along with 2,996 others on "nine-eleven" as it has come to be called.   My blog entry will appear tomorrow, as it has every year since 2006.

As part of my research I stumbled upon this wonderful video for The Alzheimer's Foundation.  There is a great blog out there called Smoke and Mirrors by Michael Murphy, a. blogger who has all the talent I wish I had. He posted the video at the request of one of his readers.

My mother has Alzheimer's and it has progressed to the point where she remembers very little of her life.  The other day she was unable to remember her name.

The video below is not a "downer." It's neither frightening nor depressing. It's short and, well, it's important.  Don't be afraid to watch it.

Remember those you love.  And give a gift to The Alzheimer Foundation so that we all can remember the important things in our lives.

Just saw the link in my dashboard and wanted to stop by and say thank you. The video is very powerful.
I've been through hell and back with this Alzheimer thing and have extensive knowledge in dealing with it. Ever need someone to listen, feel free to email me.
Happy Thanksgiving, Bob.
