Is this my yard? another Alzheimer Quilt

My neighbor's 59 year old brother-in-law was recently diagnosed with Early Onset Alzheimer's and is now in an Alzheimer facility.  He enjoyed working in his yard but now does not remember anything about the garden..  This is dedicated to him.

Gramma, Don't you know me? May 2010 Alzheimer Priority Quilt

Our son was in his early 20's when his Grandmother Shaver was diagnosed with Alzheimer's and placed in a church home for Alzheimer patients.  We had prepared him for what the visit with grandmother would be like and he was so certain she would know him.  It was a devastating visit for him.  When my neighbor gave me this photo of her graddaughter I was reminded of that visit so many years ago.
