    a friend at church mentioned this video and even as she told me about it her tears welled up.
    It's definately a hankie job but absolutely brilliant portrayal of someone with dementia from their perspective.
    I would love one of my short stories to be made into a film!

    Sarah, I saw this video at the very start of my Mum's illness. We're now at a late stage and I properly appreciate the video for the first time.

    My goodness Sarah. What a moving film. So much of it reminded me of Bill.

    Goodness, nice to see you here Jancis, the first person to respond to my first post here nearly 7 years ago. I hope you are well.

    Missed this earlier Sarah. So emotional to watch and am in tears.
    It took me back in time to Dave’s years in the nursing home. x

    I've seen that before Sarah, it really is beautiful. I'm afraid I couldn't watch it all this time. Too emotional for me at the moment.

    I hope you don't mind - I've borrowed the link to put on my Facebook page.
