I have not posted on here in ages. My mom died April 1, 2013 and I just lost my energy. It has taken me over a year to get reinspired and talk about the book and Alzheimer’s again.

We have celebrated 2 Christmas’s without her and have started new traditions by spending Christmas in Vermont with my friend Rima and her son Afif. They used to come to our house for Christmas; now we are going to her house. We had a great time this past year.

My dad turned 87 in Nov 2014 and he is learning to be a bachelor. He is spending the winter with me again in Boca Raton. He has learned to cook a few signature dishes that he enjoys plus he has taken up watercolor painting. He is at the grocery store right now after his painting class, and buying the ingredients to make meat balls for dinner for me. It is so nice that he is doing his part!

Mom would be very proud. We feel her with us constantly smiling over us and sending us love every minute. Our lives have to go on but we keep her in our hearts every moment. She is so grateful that me and my sister JO are taking such good care of my dad.
