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.

Now with readers from around the world, Sheri knows she is not alone, and that her daily struggle is shared by many. The comments and emails of support she has received have been such a blessing. Thank you for everything. Click the link below to view the list Sheri's is slide 18.

    Congratulations Sheri! Janet and I read you every day. We think back 50 plus years to when we went to school with Bob in PA and think about the way he was...a big strapping, happy, tuba playing boy on his way to you. If wishes would come true, we'd wish to go back and start all over again.

  2. Congratulations! I am not surprised. Your efforts are creative, concise, and clever. I look forward to your entry each day. Sally

  3. Hi Sheri. You deserve the honor. The first thing I do n the morning is read your blog. You are so honest, and you share so much of what you are feeling. Poems, pictures, Bible verses, tears and love. Thank you. Sue

  4. "like button" !! Your blog is part of my morning routine- coffee and quiet time before DH gets up. I love your observations, comments, sense of humor, and verses. Isn't it wonderful to know each of us are not really alone in our struggles...
