Needless to say, your post was not here when I posted earlier Grace.<quoted text>
Ah..so SO sad, and who would I be
to challenge the family at such a dreadful
time for them, but it was very chancy
allowing the dear lady outside AT ALL,
without a minder,
I know she had her little dog,
the grand daughter said, it was HE who
brought HER for the walk and back again
The tragic thing about ALZHEIMERS is - as we know -
is the confusion of mind - in this case
she didn't even have enough mental capacity
to go into a shop or petrol station ANYWHERE and just say
Added to the sadness apparently when the body
was removed her little dog died minutes after,
I suppose he was weak and traumatized by the whole event-
but remained with her faithfully to the end.
Such caring comments after the story in the link.....and as is
mentioned, at the very least this dear lady did not die alone.
One can only imagine that her mind went blank on the journey home.
The only redeeming factor I can find Grace, is that she did not sink into the final stages of Alzheimers....having seen that first hand, as I know you have also, it is frightening.
May this lady and her little dog R.I.P together.
