    That's wonderful Chunkymama! What a nice thing for you to do. :) I think it's nice that he wrote you to let you know who received your lovingly made quilt!

    could not get the pic to copy , but here is the link. all of you are more talented than I and it would be a great idea if we could get lots more quilts in to raise money. It goes for reserch and no I have found out my mother has this. She is saying I'm stealing gffrom her and getting her mail :( please pray for her - and me. I'm the only one left and it's getting hard.

    Chunkymama,

    I'm so sorry to hear about your mom! My mother's mother has alzhiemers and when she has visited, my grandma doesn't remember her. She thinks she's a nice lady.

    We made her a pretty tied quilt that she seemed to like.

    How insincere of me, I didn't even see where you said you just found out that your mom has Alzhiemer's disease. I will pray for you and your family. I know that it is hard to see your loved one have a disease like this. Your mom sounds like she is in a more severe state than my grandmother is. My grandma doesn't accuse us of anything yet, she is just very forgetful. She tells everyone she is goofy. She knows she has this disease and feels embarressed and angry when she does something wrong or can't remember what something is or how to do something. Is your mom aware that she has Alzhiemer's? It is very hard and I pray that you will have all of the strength and courage in the world to go through this, if there is anything I can do, please let me know! Is your mom on any medication to slow the progression of her Alzhiemer's?
