Mum and her dog, Peggy

My mother passed away on April 4 after a long battle with Alzheimer's Disease. My husband and my sisters and I made the marathon drive to Jonesboro, Arkansas to see her one last time. It was emotionally draining but I'm so glad we made it to her bedside before she died - I know that our being there meant a lot to her husband. He was her faithful and devoted caregiver and advocate and visited her every single day for the five years she was in the nursing home. He'll miss her terribly.
