Why the Alzheimers society?
These Chickadees were created in honor of my grandmother (&her sisters) who passed from Alzheimers in 2017. She taught me how to press flowers and inspired a love of crafts at a very young age. She was one of the strongest, bravest women I have come to know and I will always miss her.
I will not miss those last years of watching her whither away into a shell of who she once was. I will not miss walking into the room and her having no idea who I am. I will not miss introducing her to her Great Grand children but having to keep them out of reach in case she became violent. She is in a better place now and for that I am grateful, but the effects of this disease are haunting and I wouldn't wish it on anyone.
