Feeling You Close to me as You Disappear.............

Peggy,          I wish that I knew why you developed Alzheimer's Disease.   It makes me angry and afraid!  Angry that I am losing you and Afraid that I too, will eventually develope the disease.  I considered  taking the test to determine if I carried the gene. I decided against it. I learned that even if a person carries the gene, they may not develope the disease. My mind wanders there if I forget something or have trouble recalling a word or name. When I talk with you each day, I must remind myself not to say, Do you remember when we....you don't remember our times together. sniff...sniff...I am recalling today the day's we spent at the beach a few years ago. We had such a fun time together. Lifeand fate made you my sister but you are more than that. You're My Forever Friend because of the beauty inside of you  No one will ever understand me and stand by me quite the same way that you have. Forever Sisters, Forever Friends!    I love you Today, Peggy                                                                           MaryLouise

Since learning about Peggy I too have gone through a bout of worrying just because I would open a wrong cupboard door or forgot what I was looking for. It must be really hard for you. But we all forget things all the time. If you like I can list all the stupid things I do every day so you can compare and believe me the list will be long! Have a great day!

MaryLouise, I loved the pictures of Peggy and you. Especially the last one with your heads leaning in together for a closeup. You are both so beautiful! Keep those warm feelings with you on the hard days. I'll be visiting again tomorrow. Visit me when you have time. Building a Dream (journal) Heather
