When I would sometimes break down and cry at the loss, I felt my son and my mother were often happily interacting together, focusing on the joy of the moment.

My son was five when my mother began to experience memory loss from Alzheimer's.
My son formed a lovely and close relationship with his grandmother. He played silly games with her, told her the play-by-play of his soccer games over and over while she patiently listened, took her hand and guided her up to the buffet at a restaurant and returned with plates full of bacon.
And when I would sometimes break down and cry at the loss, I felt my son and my mother were often happily interacting together, focusing on the joy of the moment. Memory was not the only thing that made my mother a loving and joyful person to be with.
