My parents have been married 72 years today. This photo was taken 8 days after their wedding. The photo was taken at my Dads birthplace.
My Mom saved the top of their cake. She covered it in wax. Last Spring when we were helping her go through things the box with the cake inside was opened. Needless to say the photo is worth keeping...but the cake was not!
My Dad has dementia. He will be 96 in a few days. He may or may not realize that it is their wedding anniversary. My Mom who takes care of Dad will know that it is a special day...one that she recalls fondly.
Dementia is hard... outwardly Dad looks the same...dementia is hard.
