From the Publisher
I feel that "ALZHEIMER'S-THE GOOD THE SAD & THE HUMOROUS" is an enlightening journey through my eyes as a former caregiver, with worthwhile and in all hopefulness, useful as well as practical experience to share.
From the Author
I thoroughly enjoyed writing this book. Although I kept a small journal during the years my mother lived with me, I only began writing my book after my mother entered a nursing home facility. I entertained the thought after being approached by a cetified nurses assistant (CNA) who saw me writing in my journal and asked,"Are you writing a book?" I promptly answered, "Yes," thinking it would keep him on his toes regarding the care of my mother.
On my way home that evening I tried to think of an appropriate title and came up with : Alzheimer's: The Good, The Sad & The Humouus / A Daughter's Story and stuck with that formate. There began the birth of my book.
Writing my book helped me through periods when I thought I could no longer cope. It helped me tremendously, as I hope it will help others.

Verna's poems are not only straight from the heart, but brilliantly written with warmth of heart and true feeling.
I couldn't help but read this book in one night, for I found it was impossible for me to put down. I found myself laughing at the humorous portions of the book as well as crying when she expressed her innermost and personal feelings in regard to caring for her mother. Verna obviously loved her mother dearly as can be felt by reading her story. Although her mother died as most Alzheimer's sufferers do, Verna told her story in the most heartwarming of fashions.
I truly feel this is a must read for anyone experiencing this sad , but realistic problem in our society today.
