For family members awaiting the end of a long road to the final goodbye, Alzheimer's is a terrible foe. Unlike so many terminal illnesses we face in life this antagonist seemingly refuses to let go.
My family and I have endured 5 years watching my wife's mother leave us behind bit by bit until only our precious memories of her remain. What a cruel assailant we have fought alongside her.
I've thanked the Lord many times for the Sunday morning in May 2014 when He sent our dear one His Grace as she prayed her own prayer of repentance along with my beloved Mother Church at her side. Thank God for the plan of salvation, that whosoever would could be saved.
Now we wait upon the Lord as our loved one lies in Hospice House care, unknowing and dreading when that last breath, that final heartbeat will come and she makes that leap across the Jordan river. God speed mother.
