Caption: Sometime you will become a mother to your mum. With Alzheimer's this arrives and leaves only when she is released. Mum died 25 years after it started and Dad and I cleaned out so he could move on too. The piece includes 3 of her scarves: poinsettias embroidered, cups and saucers and the blue emblems with buttons her father gave her. The whole piece is surrounded by flowers, which she loved.
