Artist's Statement: Both my mother-in-law and father-in-law, as well as several of their siblings suffered from Alzheimer’s disease. Those of us who have married into this family are well aware of the devastating results. As my husband and his 5 siblings are approaching their mid 70s we all wonder if we will begin to see signs of the disease. We all pray for preventive research as well as a cure for this disease that kills the mind.

Dedication: To Georgia Bee and Eugene Beard, Ruth and Bill Johnson and to other families affected.
