It was the morning of Monday 15 March 2010 when Dad was given a reason for the forgetfulness and confusion that have plagued and frustrated him over the last few years. It’s been a slow process now compounded by a steadying decline in physical health.

I know I’m biased, but she writes beautifully and her few entries have already moved me and others deeply.
You can follow their journey at http://ateightyone.wordpress.com/ and perhaps add your own stories…
