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.

That's a brilliant sum to have raised and how lovely to be able to honour your father by helping others who suffer from this horrible diseasexx

That is a wonderful amount of money raised for much needed research into a horrible disease.

Such a lovely picture of your mum and dad, Deborah.

I do love that picture of Mum & Dad. They look so happy and relaxed, don't they?

That's terrific. It's a terrible, heart breaking disease.

What a lovely photo of your parents.

Glad your family and friends were so generous. My grandmother also suffered from Alzheimer's and I worry that my mother might head that direction someday.

But as always, it's an opportunity to show unconditional love when we can be there for our parents.

It is good to know there is quite a lot of progress being made in the research. I just hope that every day more answers are found.

Congrats for getting to the 1000. I'm late again, going through LJ.
~ Yes, you were lucky with your dad - my grandma had forgotten who we were too after a while.
