This blog is about life with my husband who was diagnosed with Early Onset Alzheimer's and Frontal Lobe Dementia in 2008. He was 64 at the time although now, knowing more about the disease, Alzheimer's was present many, many years ago, which is why early detection is so important. As you read the blog the character"Al" that I created in 2008 represents the way that Alzheimer's is invading our daily lives.

Living with Bob and "Al"

Below is a writing of Sheri's long before she knew just how much she would need God's strength. God knew Sheri would need to lean on Him through her cancer, through Bob's Alzheimer"s, through her Mom's paralyzing car accident ...from birth and in 1997 when this was written.

I had wept through life in silent sorrow,
With Christ unknown and an uncertain tomorrow

So I searched my heart for many years
And wrestled with my many fears.

It was a journey that took me far within
A place in my soul I had never been

Among the books I walked many a mile
Searching for answers in Gods gracious smile

Then as if the Lord had blessed my eyes
The words were real I was no longer blind

You died on the cross and took with you my sin
Only now I can see how selfish I’ve been

Yet with open arms I found you there
With a forgiving heart and a tender prayer

I have humbly asked you
Into my heart
Thank you dear Jesus
We never shall part.

Sheri Zschocher
1997
