Memorial Day Fever Memories

My mom died on Memorial Day Weekend.

She had been ill with Lewy body-a form of dementia. She had probably had a few strokes prior to that as well-according to my father who was busy taking care of her while he was dealing with his own health issues (unbeknownst to any his children). He left us four years before all of this.
