Dedication: To a dedicated husband/caregiver and his lovely wife. Years ago, she was an Alzheimer's patient of mine in a geriatric clinic. When it was time to work the fields, he would dress her in work clothes and set her next to him in the tractor cab. When it was time for an appointment, he would get in the shower with her, then dress her beautifully, including make-up and jewelry. I'm sure he gave her joyous birthday celebrations, as well!
