I created this poster in memory of my two grandmothers who travelled this path before me;
Thank you, Leota Pearl Spencer (1892-1979), and
Thank you, Erma Leola Kilroy (1917-2006),
… for lighting the path ahead of me, eliminating my fear.
Thank you, Dementia Mentors for giving me the glorious opportunity of passing on this illumination.

Text of poster:
“Since I learned from those who sent before me and led the way,
I do not dread what is to come.
This is not a NEW path, even though it is unfamiliar to me.
Like those before me, I will travel this path with honor and integrity,
lighting the path for those who follow
— until a cure is found.” — TLK (me)
UPDATE: Thinking about this more, I very much appreciate how both my great grandmother then my grandmother handled their dementia symptoms. Their actions AFTER dementia are almost appreciated MORE than prior, because it so excellently showed their fortitude, creativity, love (despite confusion over not getting what they wanted, & even when not remembering WHO they were speaking with) and the growth of their unseen, spiritual relationships.
