59 TH WEDDING ANNIVERSARY

Today is our fifty-ninth wedding anniversary. I thought it might be fun to show you what we looked like way back in 1950. And then to show you what we look like now. We have been through a lot together, but all in all we have had a good life together. Bill is now in a rest home with Alzheimer’s disease . He has had it for the last 7 years but has only lately become more disabled. I go to see him everyday. He is here but not here but I am glad he is still here.

Aaah, Bernie, what a bittersweet story. 59 years! Wow! Alzheimers sucks...just my opinion from having witnessed it up close and personal. Would like to see a post on your experiences with it someday. Do you live on your own?

I've passed the Lemonade Award on to you.

See my post dated 10/2/09. You may "pass" on being in the list; otherwise, you've got lemonade!

Oh, what a perfect gift. They have the things they need, clearly. But another expression of love is always welcome. Personalized gifts
