A: Do you know?

My grandparents have been married almost 50 years. Both suffer from Alzheimer's disease and spend most their day on that couch. The pictures watching over them are of their two daughters.

In the Don't You Remember Me? photo essay.

    I find all of the photos of your grandparents very touching. They have the extra quality of letting us into their world and they are a reminder to us all to be kind for we are all going to be old one day.

    Great photo. You have to take more of these two. They are very photogenic and the story is very moving. The photos above are very important especially as memories arte so elusive to them. Perhaps you can try to capture them with various things that are really precious to them to further tell the story.
