I have often wondered the same thing. But the truth is I am just me. The sum of all parts of woman, wife, mother, grandmother, friend, and most of all true to myself.
Howard and I own a thematic art collection of kissing couples and in 1992 it was shown on Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous. Then in 1993 Howard was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s Disease, and my world caved in.
I started a secret journal to relieve my pain, while I smiled for Howard. it saved my sanity.
Seven years later they changed the diagnosis, and when I finally showed Howard my journal. He said, “You have to publish this. It’s beautiful, it’s you.”
Behind The Mask is that journal, and now that it’s published my goal in life is to help people adopt a caregiver, so they aren’t left alone without a support system. One person can make a difference. With your help I can make this lifetime project a reality.
Remember to keep love and kisses in your life.
