Huge hugs to you, Amy. This made me cry, and have tinglies all at the same time. To quote Sophia, "love you big!"


Oh, Amy. I'm sitting here with my tears just flowing down my cheeks. Though I've known since we talked a few days ago, reading your poignant thoughts on the matter just made it really sink in. Doug was napping and my gasp awoke him only to ask, "What's the matter, Babe?" I read him your post. We both ache with you. Our hearts are with you. Our prayers are with your whole family, you know that. I'm so sorry that this is one of the tests in your life. Another opposition in all things. I'm here for you. And Marg said it for me. Love you BIG.



Hugs to you, Amy. That's so hard.


Wow, you can already write about it? I feel heartless that its you writing about it that has made me cry, not the actual "finding out." Thanks for giving him the gift of Kaleb here at the beginning of the end.

Love you, sis.

Amy, bless your heart. This had to have been one of the most difficult things you have ever written. I am so touched by your words. What a beautiful tribute to your dad (and I LOVE this photo). May Heavenly Father watch over your earthly father and may peace abide in your heart.


Amy, I am so sorry to hear this--you and your family are in my thoughts. I am so glad to read this wonderful tribute to your dad. You are blessed to have such a good and compassionate father. Big hugs to all of you and may you find peace as you deal with the impact of this news.

I am so sorry to hear about your dad. I still think that despite the Alzheimer's that your dad really does and will know your son. My thoughts and prayers with your family.

Hi Amy. I don't know you and you don't know me. I was online searching for answers to one of my Dad's most recent set of symptoms and my search brought up your blog about your Dad. I'm really so sorry and I understand exactly what you mean. My Dad was diagnosed a few years ago and I too had a mixture of relief at finding out why my Dad was no longer his funny, teasing, intelligent self and feeling the horror of what surely will come. I just wanted to say that I appreciated what you said. I think one of the hardest things for me to see is the confusion in his eyes. I am so grateful to know that my Dad is in there somewhere and when he does leave this life, he will be restored and be able to look back on this test that he is passing through with clarity and understanding.
Aren't we lucky to have the gospel?
Anyway, thanks again.
