Dear Rick you have my deepest sympathy in your wife’s long battle with Alzheimer’s. I am remarried to a man whose first wife died of vascular dementia. It saddens my heart to know that you and your wife had such a long difficult journey to end her life. But you know at this point she is no longer a victim but her spirit is at peace with the Lord. Take care Rick and find peace for your soul knowing this.
