Wow, especially in the era when mental health issues were not handled well he showed great strength and love. Beautiful. Thank you for sharing. It is hard seeing my grandmother that way. Well behaved black women rarely make history poster. She was a first grade teacher my whole life and so vibrant and always busy!! She loves to read which she passed on to my mom who passed it onto me. I think it hurt the most seeing her no longer pick up a book because she doesn’t know the words to read. I’m so sorry you are losing your mom all over again. She sounds like an incredible woman. What a blessing she was for you and your entire neighborhood for all of those years! I hope that all of those cherished memories will help carry you through. She definitely is much more than that person sitting in the chair.

Sending love and light your way even as you come to terms with the whole situation. Great mama and your dad is an amazing person. Those of us who have worked in dementia care understand, and your lovely post is such a tribute. She is indeed so much more than this disease. Well behaved black women rarely make history poster. Wishing you peace in the days ahead. It’s so wonderful you remember all the good within your mother and didn’t dwell on the years of her absence. Positivity and love is within you! We are a trinity. Body, Mind and soul. Even when my father’s body and mind went, I never gave up on his soul, and that was of great comfort to me, and hopefully him.
