The Long Goodbye

I have heard Alzheimer's Disease called 'the long goodbye'.  For seven years we have watched as my mother-in-law Theresa battled this disease.  She passed away early Wednesday morning.  Missing who she once was has truly been a long goodbye.

She is at peace now as are her family.  I will be away for a few days as we travel to California to celebrate a life that was so very dear to us.  We will gather together, tell stories of what was and remember her as she would have wished us to remember her - a strong, loving woman - wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother. 

I wish her sweet eternal dreams.

"For death is no more than a turning of us over from time to eternity". - William Penn 


  1. May it be easy travels for you, Penny, and may you & yours become stronger through remembering her most real self.
