This is a picture of my mother. She had Alzheimer's and I lost her November 7, 2007

Pretty lady your mom!... but sad the affliction!! Must have had a smart, active and energetic lifestyle.

Beautifully done.

Our sorrow never ends nor our need for our mothers. Her beauty still shines through you and your sisters and the memories within your heart.

What a great haiku.
So poignant.

Oh this is very touching, both photo and haiku. I love that she lived and hopefully found comfort in her yesterdays, and I know the weariness of family watching their loved one disappear. So touching.

This is very beautiful. It's very hard to watch a loved one not remember because you've lost them in a certain respect.

Beautiful and heartfelt - well done.

I think Alzheimer's is one of the worst possible afflictions. It steals your loved ones right in front of you - and I cannot imagine what it is like from their side of the eyes.
