It is with great sorrow that I announce that my beloved mother lost her long battle with Alzheimer's disease on November 2, 2017. 

Despite suffering from Alzheimer's, my mother lived a full life on her own terms.  Her essence came through until the end.  As the years passed, with the help of the Alzheimer's Association, as well as a competent and accessible physician, my family learned to love and support her through all the difficult stages of this merciless disease.  It wasn't easy, but with the constant support and advocacy of her family she was able to enjoy a good quality of life until her disease finally took her from us.

"Who Is Today" is our story.   May sharing our successes as well as our failures light the path for others.

"Who Is Today?"  is available in both Kindle ( and print version (see link below).   Currently, all proceeds received are being donated to the Alzheimer's Association or to Senior Services.
