We Love You, Winston

Many of you have been asking where I have been, especially since I bragged that I would be posting every single day this month. Okay, it was one of you. Anyway, my father in law has been struggling with Alzheimer's for many years now. It is a terrible disease that affects the whole family. He is expected to die this week.

I have obviously been out in the real world rather than hiding in my fun little bloggy world. All I have to say is appreciate all the people in your life who love you! I need to spend time with my family for now.

Kirsten, I'm so very sorry for your loss - through death as well as Alzheimers.

My grandmother has been suffering with it for quite some time now. The only comfort I find is that she cannot remember that the man she loved for over 55 years passed away 3 years ago.

My heart goes out to you and your family.

I am so sorry. My husband lost his grandfather, who lived with us, to Alzheimer's and the struggle that goes with it in September.

We know that the people that suffered with Alzheimer's here are back to their old selves now.

You're in our hearts. Grampas are such special people.
