I am at my great-aunt today. I am looking forward seeing her and hug her big time. It is always also an emotionally sad time. Each day we talk on the phone is showing me the progress, of her forgetting. She starts thinking I am my mother, or forgets who visited her just half an hour ago. But she is happy that someone comes – and that is all that counts :)
I just saw this amazing video a couple of weeks ago and it touched my heart a lot – it made me cry and reminded me on my great-aunt and her reactions, the pictures of wrapping up the home, the photos, the reactions that remain characteristic ..even when they forgot. But foremost….it is such a wonderful and beautiful tribute to a grandfather by Lance Oppenheim.
Keep on playing! What a wonderful advice!
Huge hugs to you …Hope I didn’t make you teary…hope you see the beauty in this video too !
