Coco, the answer to the mystery: Where's the dog?

By Linda Waggener

I have a good friend named Patty. We were comparing notes about parents who sadly undergo dementia. Her story was more compelling than mine on this day.

Here's Patty's story:

Mama, bless her heart, got Alzheimers pretty bad near the end of her life and got really, really confused.

I was going to Lindsey Wilson at the time, working on finishing a paper. She kept coming into my bedroom where I was writing until I said, "Mama, if you can just let me finish this page, I'll be in there with you."
