Materials/Techniques: Images were combined and edited in Photoshop, (images belonging to maker), transferred to fabric, then free- motion thread painting and machine quilting were used.

Artist Statement: Alzheimer's is such a sad and painful disease. Confusion of short-term vs. long term memories can occur before complete loss. This is reflected in the tear of a loved one, seeing the elderly patient remembering childhood stories, but not being able to recall events of the previous day.

Dedication: To all Alzheimer patients and their caretakers.
