Mary, This is beautiful, frightening, but beautiful. The dreadful transition from the man Madge had been in love with for so many years to a stranger who did not recognise her, had no memory of their life together, but then at the last some recognition that whoever she was, he had always loved her. Thank you for such an poignant snapshot of the situation which faces so many couples as they age.

That was a powerful piece of writing. I lost my mum to Alzheimer's 3 years ago and your description was spot on!
Author's Response: Yes, I lost mine in the same way three years ago, Jenny. I watched how it hurt my dad, and how he tried so hard to be there for her for ten years.

Thank you Mary for posting here. How sad for Madge to see Jem not as he used to be and to be powerless to help.
Author's Response: Thank you, Chalet Girl. It's the powerlessness that makes one weep.

It's always hardest for those watching on, knowing what the person once was and having to deal with the rejection as thigs deteriorate.
Thanks for posting this here too, Mary. :-D
