Artist's Statement: My husband's dementia has reached the stage where he no longer communicates. I talk to him all the time because I think that maybe even if he doesn't understand the words, the sound of my voice might still be familiar to him. He doesn't react in any way to my voice. But sometimes, and it isn't that often, when he hears music he cries. Music is the only thing that seems to get an emotional response. Is it a memory?
Paula Foerder

Dedication: To my husband Pete - who always loved music.
