My mother was the most amazing person I have ever known. She has been gone awhile now but I miss her every day and I 'talk' to her every day. She held down a full time high pressure job as a trail blazer in her field and raised 2 kids by herself after my Dad died. She was not perfect but she tried to be and everything she did was for us. She did know we were turning out pretty good and got to enjoy her 2 grandsons a while before she starting slipping away and I think this disease was the worst fate she could have faced. the blessing? By the time it was full blown she could not really express her frustration as I know she would have wanted to. We must find a way to control/cure/prevent this horrid process.
