I just happened upon your blog, today, and was amazed at the similarities we share.  I, also, am a writer and publisher, and my Mom likely has Alzheimer's, as well. I started reading your blog and was deeply touched by what I've read and impressed with your research. Thank you, so much, for pouring your heart into such positive pursuit. I'm your newest fan and applaud you for your effort.  Sincerely, Debbie Russell
