My Sweetheart

It was the second time Gary found himself behind her in line at the Nordstrom Cafe in the Washington Mall in Portland Oregon. He took that as a sign he was meant to know this beautiful woman. He bought her coffee that day in 1979, they were married four months later. ‘Marty was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer’s in 2002 at 58 years old, and has been living in a locked dementia unit for the last ten years. It is difficult to say if she recognizes me, she stopped saying my name two years ago. I still come every day and feed her lunch, she knows that someone who loves her is here. This is what I can do for my sweetheart.’
