THE STORY:

On March the 9th, 2017 at 7:04 pm my Mom regained her dignity, memories, peace, and health. She went to be with Jesus. She no longer suffers from the ravages of Alzheimer's but I will forever miss her. I have spent the last month beating myself up for so many reasons. Why didn't I keep her home longer? Why didn't I go visit her more? Why didn't I research more ways to help her? Etc. The fact of the matter is, sometimes it was almost impossible. While reading some of the comments on this site, I realized that so many people face the same challenges, questions and guilt that I have, and am dealing with. I want to do as much as I can to help others in their journey with their loved ones fighting this disease. The at home care is so difficult and at times, not possible. I want to help fund ways to make it a little more easy. My family, along with my beautiful Mom, have always raised, trained and rode Quarter Horses. I want to have a benefit ride to raise money for this organization in her memory. If you don't ride or can't attend, please show your support. This is for a great cause and we can all do a little to fight Alzheimer's and the terrible tole it takes on the patient and their family. I have never organized anything like this but I am willing to work my heart out for this cause!!

I know how difficult it is to lose a loved one - and even if you are a trained caretaker, taking care of someone full time is still a very hard thing to do. My sister took care of my bedridden mother for four year and it was not easy even though my sister is a trained nurse. Don't be so hard on yourself - believe me in time it will get easier, but it does take time. 6 months ago
