My mother Laura always the Christian lady, kind and considerate, sweet and charming.  Her smile, a bit crooked- nonetheless; adorable.  Momma loved her flower garden and took great pride in her home.  She was the neighborhood candy maker during Christmas holidays.  Christmas was her favorite time of year as shown by the lights, glitter and garland with which she decorted inside and out. She enjoyed so much having the family gather at her home for Christmas dinner.

My sister who was 32 and the mother of two beautiful girls was diagnosed with dementia at age 32. All of the doctors diagnosed her her with depression at first. I am a nurse and no my sister and would tell them it was not depression. After my tests, the found she had frontal temporal lobe dementia. Doctors don't look for it in young people because it is considered a old persons disease. Nursing homes would not take her because they said they didn't know what to do with her. She passed away at age 36 on 11/25/12, almost a year ago.
