£1,000 Raised For Alzheimer's Research

This photo was taken on the lawn of Grandma & Granddad's house, on the afternoon of their weddidng, just as they are ready to head off to catch their train.

Just to let you know, and thank those who donated, that between Mum and Dad we were able to raise £1,000 to help with research for this sad condition.

We were fortunate that Dad never truly forgot who we were. We all teased each other as he assured us all that the others never visited. The classic was when he told Nick, that he had never seen me, but that Jiffy had been to visit. We presumed he was able to work out the 2 bus's he needed!!

However it was sad to see him unable to read, play the piano, etc.  So he was still Dad, although got very frustrated.

Anyway - great to be able to help support the research.  Apparently my aunt ( Mum's sister) has no knowledge of who she is, where she is, or what is happening.  So sad for my cousins.
