The last year that my Mom was alive we, of course, continued to celebrate all the holidays and birthdays that we usually celebrate. But Mom didn't remember.
We threw a Birthday Party for her in early July. Her birthday was the day before the fourth of July so we were in an extra festive mood.
We invited several family friends--people Mom used to be so excited to see. She didn't remember them.
She didn't remember that is was her birthday. She didn't remember.
But we celebrated anyway.
