On Saturday, we celebrated my mother's 97th birthday. She has dementia. I, too, will experience that sadness that you are going through. I felt it as I listened to the dementia that has taken over her mind.

I hope your trip gave you some peace and helped with the mourning process.

Thank you for your condolences. I feel so deeply for you, and others like you, whose parents' bodies live on, but the essence of who they are is so deeply hidden in their minds that it seems to be unreachable. I was SO lucky that both of my parents were still sharp as tacks right up until the end. I wish for you the strength that you need to deal with this loss of contact with your mother.
