This past Monday, Oct 20, was my parents’ 70th wedding anniversary.
Dad died last August, although Mom’s alive but has Alzheimer’s. She doesn’t even know she is married, or even who she is, but somehow she always knows she loves her 5 children, even though she doesn’t recognize that her husband has been gone for several years now.
It’s sad, but they had a happy life together, including the last years before he went to the nursing home after a fall and never recovered.
“Happy Anniversary, Mom & Dad!”
