    So sad when our love ones forget who we are and where they are at. They live in another dimension. We see the toll it takes on them and on us as well. We give them our love and sometimes they know us, then it’s onward into a time that we cannot follow.

  2. How true, Lenora. We don’t and can’t know when they are Present – however, we always show love. It is a time we cannot follow, yet the love is always present.
