Artist's Statement: Alzheimer's disease is a devastating disease with many excruciatingly painful consequences. It robs Alzheimer's patients of their future while slowly erasing the histories of their past. It steals precious time and memories from helpless family members who slowly watch their loved ones melt into an unknown world of nothingness where only their loved ones can enter. One cannot help but feel lonely and hopeless. Celebrate life's special moments each day with loved ones. Our relationships are gifts that make our hearts sing. Cherish Each Moment. It is my dream that we find a cure for Alzheimer's in my lifetime. Trying to make that happen one art quilt at a time . . .
Fannie Narte

Dedication: To all who have lost family members to Alzheimer's disease and who fear that they may be next.
