This is the fabric version of a photo of my mother, Frances Smith, and her boyfriend, Bill Weltner, both residents of Sydney Creek, an Alzheimer's Facility in San Luis Obispo, as they walked the halls. This photo was taken about two months before they both passed (Frances died May 16, 2009, and Bill two weeks later, June 1, 2009). The full scale Memory Walk (25X34") currently hangs at Sydney Creek.
