Alzheimer’s disease has a devastating effect on its victims, those who suffer from it directly and those loved ones who try to care for them to the end.
In this book Gwen Bibber Kimball uses powerful words to paint indelible images and contrasts to explain the ravaging effects of Alzheimer’s on her beloved husband Dave. Taken from her personal journal, Gwen shares witty and delightful accounts of the humorous moments to the excruciating pain of going beyond reasonable limits as a caregiver. Her poetic expressions of her deep faith in God and the stability of family and friends to the utter aloneness in coming to terms with what happened following Dave’s death will touch your heart.
Gwen is amazing in her astute assessments of each plateau of the disease and what it meant for daily life, booth good and bad. Her book touched me deeply. I have glimpsed the anguish of two families forever changed.
