Dedication: Remembering Helen Frost. Alzheimer’s is a truly horrible condition. Many years ago as a teenager I knew an elderly lady from church. Every day for three years she made a complicated bus journey to visit her husband in hospital, some days he refused to speak to her, on the days that he did he showed her his wedding photo, and told her that he was waiting for his wife to come and visit him, "She is young and pretty, not like you." I believe that they had been married for 58 years!
