That's so sad Loopyloo. It must be really difficult. I dread the day when my OH doesn't remember me or our children and grandchildren. He is already forgetting our son's children who we don't see frequently. Like Mudlark has said we have to hold on to our good memories. Nothing can take those away from us. Remember the good times and share them with your mum if she is still mentally able. Good luck x
