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.

Sheri keeps thinking about about how many others are on this journey. The isolation this wretched disease brings.It makes her so much more aware of what people are going through, whether this  disease or any other, this type of isolation or any other... Sheri manages a 200 unit apartment community and many times in the evening when she walks Sir Cooper, she realizes that within these walls are peoples lives. Isolated into cubicles each dealing with their own journey, their own pain and isolation. Of course there is joy as well, but for some reason as the sunsets and the glow of their living room lights casts shadows on blinds, Sheri can't help but feel she does not do enough to reach the lonely and the brokenhearted, and she realizes what a fragmented world we live in.
Sheri needs to pause praise and pray.


  1. Thinking of you today with hugs, love and prayers for peace, comfort and blessings for you and your family. God bless you, Donna

  2. Happy Thanksgiving to you, the girls and their husbands. Thinking of you today and praying that you are all well. I know how hard every "first" occasion can be after the passing of a loved one. May your sweet memories of past Thanksgivings with Bob brighten your day. Lots of love from TO.
