How far you go in life depends on you being
tender with the young, compassionate with
the aged, sympathetic with the striving and
tolerant of the weak. Because someday in
life you will have been all of these.

I know everyone that has ever been apart of
Eileens life knows of her huge gigantic hugs,
it's the one thing I've always loved about her.
When I first met Phil and he introduced me to
his mom, she gave me one of her hugs..
just engulfed me in her arms and made me
feel so important. I remember her attacking
Lucas and Jamie when they were young with
her hugs and kisses.. I love the way she can
wrap her arms around me like the hug matters
so much. She still does that every day I go to
visit her, Like she hasn't seen me in years.

She has been doing so well the last couple
years, very delusional but still some reality
about life and things around her. Lately thou
she seems to be slipping into a different phase...
she is still able to do the daily things for herself
but her delusions are getting very unusual and
she is forgetting what some things are.
Like the other day we were taking a walk and
she noticed a sprinkler head in the grass and
was telling me it was something else..
Little things like this along with the delusions
getting very out there lead me to believe she
is taking a step farther along in this disease.

I want to make sure everyone in her family has
an opportunity to see her if they can before
she looses the ability to give us her wonderful
hugs and smiles.
