I don't think I posted this particular picture earlier when it was photographed 8 years ago in the rest home where my mother was a resident. I came across it today on Easter Sunday and it brought back so many memories. However, I did see another picture similar to this one that I posted on my site at the following link

We took Mom out for an Easter dinner that day and spent the afternoon visiting with her. She started to cry right before this when she knew we were going to be leaving to go home and I was trying to comfort her... it was a sad moment but my husband who shot this picture of us with my camera got a little smile from her.

A month before Mom passed away October 26 of 2011 she no longer knew who I was. Dementia is heartbreaking when a parent is afflicted by this but we have to remember the good memories we had with her and my father through the years and accept what couldn't be changed at the end of their lives.

Have a happy Easter with your families and enjoy those precious moments with them.
