Dear Nani,

Thank you. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for being the strong and intelligent woman you are. Thank you for shedding your knowledge on me. Thank you for your amazing taste buds you shared.

Thank you for lending your ears when I needed to vent. Thank you for showing me the light when I feel it is dark. Thank you for giving me courage when I was told wrong. Thank you for believing in me.

I know you do not remember doing these things for me but just know how much you mean to me. Alzheimer’s does not represent who you are and who you were. You are my Nani and I know you will always know who I am. As you stare at me and smile all these wonderful memories take place as I feed you, brush your hair or change you.

You will always be my Nani.

I love you.
