:)A brief message from Germain's sister for all those who contribute to the threads and posts. I have only just joined the site, but have been avidly following advice and tips sent to Germain in answer to her queries. Thank you to everyone for supporting Germain and indirectly myself throughout the many ups and downs of Mum's alzheimers. As all of you who have read Germain's post will know, Mum died this morning at 3a.m. and although we obviously feel a sense of loss and a great void opening up, to reiterate Germain's comments, we should give three cheers as Mum had a good, happy 85 years of life and still managed to retain a sense of mischievous humour even towards the end (she always managed to gently smack a carer's bum as she passed - with a cheeky grin on her face whilst doing so!). I hope I'm still like that at 85!
Thank you all again for your support - invaluable. :):):)

Hi Germain's sister, and welcome to TP. I echo your sentiments, I too hope to have a cheeky grin on my face to the end.

Your mum must have been a lovely lady.

Welcome to TP! It is lovely to read of two people who have faced the "dementia journey" with their beloved Mum and still reached the end with such wonderful attitudes towards everything! Thank you! Your optimism and Germain's are rays of light in a dark tunnel. May your marvellous memories of your wonderful mother comfort you both in the time ahead.
