To my many friends here who have provided so much love, kindness, support, prayers and good thoughts over the years as my dear wife Dada has battled
the ravages of Alzheimer's disease... My heartfelt thanks to you all.
Today, Friday January 11, 2019, her long struggle and her suffering came to an end. She passed away in her sleep just before 11 am our time.
I went in to visit her yesterday in the LDN (care center) where she'd been since she was transferred from the hospital a week earlier. The senior
doctor in the LDN told me her condition was very poor and that she might not even last through the weekend. She went down so fast in the past few
days. Last Saturday she was sitting up in bed and pretty happy, making eye contact with me and glad to have me there with her. But over the next few
days her infections came back and hit her even harder than last time.
I visited Dada in her room and she was sleeping, so I kissed her and spoke softly to her. I told her I loved her, and even though she slept I believe
that somewhere in her mind, she heard me.
Originally I'd planned to visit her again this afternoon, but the doctor called me around 11 am to tell me she'd just passed. Apparently she never
woke up from that sleep.
Sleep peacefully, my love. You're in my heart forever.
