Florene and Alzheimer’s 

 
As your memory fades more each day

So has the memory of not knowing me

One more grandchild you may not remember

ever 

having met 

due to the disease of Alzheimer

 

Memories are those rare treasures

We keep throughout our lives

Whether bitter or sweet, they remain

And remind us who we are every day

 

We die without dying

When we have forgotten

Our own name



Written in memory of my late grandmother Florene Jones Athey.
