Excerpts from my friend Harry Urban’s blog at http://mythoughtsondementia.com/blog.html .
Just because I have Alzheimer’s doesn’t mean I can’t live out my fantasies.
… During Christmas I can spread the joys while living behind my disguise.
I become this man that everyone loves … that we call Santa.
No one feels sorry for Santa
or pities him because he has Alzheimer’s.
Unconditional love is shown toward Santa during this time of year
and they talk to him even if it just a hello Santa.
They see him and don’t just walk by him.
I wish I could be Santa every day of every year.
