First, so sorry. I am Scots wife. I have never met your family but feel like I know you from all the stories i have heard over the years. We have 7 children and we have a Carson Troy and a Carey. I know the difficulties of dementia and Alzheimer's. My mother just passed away as well from that. Even though I knew it was coming. I am having a hard time dealing. You are in my prayers. Love Debbie
