No one knows better than a sister
how we grew up, and who our
friends, teachers and favorite toys were.
No one knows better than she. (Dale V. Atkins)
This knowing about our lives....
Is what Alzheimer's disease took from Peggy.
took my sister from me.
I have often thought that if Alzheimer's disease
could take on a form.....
It wouldn't ever want to meet me.
It would want to hide from me.
I grew up watching out for Peggy,
defending her against anyone who was mean to her
or would harm her.
Alzheimer's disease wouldn't ever want to meet me
after what it has done to Peggy.
My anger towards this vile monster would be unleashed
and after the fight....
There would only be a greasy spot where Alzheimer's stood.
