  • Thanks for the article about Alzheimer’s. My mother’s mother developed early onset Alzheimer’s in her late 40s or early 50s and I (the oldest grandchild) am the only grandchild who remembers her being at all normal; in fact, my youngest uncle (20 months younger than I) does not remember her as being normal at all. My mother’s oldest sister has developed Alzheimer’s in her early 90s (She is now 95) and does not even know her own children. (My mother is 93 with only mild stroke-related dementia and is able to read what she wants, even though she is wheelchair-bound.) When I was 11 years old, my grandma already had trouble speaking. I knew from my mother that she used to play a guitar and sing to her children, so I played some chords on my new guitar and sang a few of the songs she used to know. She started crying and after about 15 minutes of her attempts to communicate, I realized that she was trying to say “I used to play one of those.” She had forgotten the word “guitar.” She eventually went into a vegetative state and died at the age of 62.

  • Dear Mr. Pasley,

    Thank you for sharing you the touching tragedy of Alzheimer’s in your family. My own father also suffered from Alzheimer’s and diabetes as well. He was in his 80’s and passwed away at 90. I of course wonder what may have been for him at the time.

    Regards, Alan Inglis MD
