My brother sent me an article today about Darrell Royal, the beloved U.T. Longhorn coach who is now 88 years old and suffering with alzheimer's. In the article his wife, Edith, talks about how stressful it has been for her. She says that Darrell has kept a certain sense of humor and it still comes out at times. My mother was the same way. She had a killer sense of humor and it showed up even near the end or her life.
I miss her every day and I enjoy looking at pictures of the two of us enjoying ourselves even while dealing with the heartbreak of dementia. Her soul will continue to live on in all who knew and loved her.
