|Written as though you had experienced dementia yourself. Reminded me of my grandmother when I visited her in late stages of Alzheimer's. She would just sit and stare, that strange smile on her face, and open her mouth to eat anything that was placed there.

|Such a sad and truamatic disease. My wife's uncle had alzhiemers. It was very hard on the family. She is finally at peace. May God bless you every day of your life.

|It has to be so terrifying in that dark place all alone. I hope that I never have these moments of dementia because I have already seen the dark reaches of the mind and they are terribly lonely places to be. Thank you for sharing Anna, may the peace of the Lord be with those that suffer these dreadful and sad moments.
May the Lord Jesus bless you, and those whom you love, and be with you always, and at your side constantly. With much love in my heart, joy to the world, peace on earth, & ((((((((((MANY WONDERFUL SISTERLY HUGGGGSSSS)))))))))), your little sister, Barbie

|Seeing dementia makes me wonder where they go during the confused times. Those little "knowing" episodes are bits of light for the loved ones looking on, as well as lighting up the afflicted ones.
I guess there are many of us who have lost family members this way. So sad, and so hard to cope with for family.
You've made it very realistic in this piece--good for anyone to read, to gain understanding of what it's like.

Great rendering of dementia and caring.

|I was so fortunate my loved ones were spared, and their departure was from places of love they knew as home.

|Alsheimers and dementia are one of the cruelest diseases that a person can be afflicted with,,,have seen more than a few loved ones end up like that and it is heartbreaking...

|I can relate to what you have shared through your verses here, Annabel. My father "lost" his mind at the end and I recall vividly what you have shared through your experience. Thank you. Love and best wishes,
