The Ribbon - Care for Caregivers
Dedication Garden Archive
Dedications through May, 2000


Weather91 and Pampmom would like to pay tribute to our friend, Marge, who in caring for her Mom, Dot, has given us insight and understanding into the lives of all those caring for loved ones with Alzheimers Disese. Your devotion, Marge, is endless. The respect and admiration we have for you, and all those like you, is immense. You are all, truly, quiet heroes.



My name is Laura and I want to let my mom, Rita, know that I love her and I appreciate the job she does taking care of my dad. My mom does the best she can dealing with this fate. I apologize for putting pressure on her to go further than she is ready to go. I will help in any way I can, but she bears most of the burden, and all my love goes to her!



This is dedicated to Alzjane198. You did not quit caregiving after your mother passed. You are now a caregiver to the caregivers. Your wisdom and caring heart warms us all.
I want you to know how much I appreciate you and your 16 years of helping others. You are my calm voice in the middle of all the storms.
God Bless You Jane.



Our Mom is our hero as she deals with our Dad's Alzheimer's without our help because she is living far away. All her life she has sacrificed so much and again she rises to the occasion to give our Dad the very best care possible. We love her beyond words. Love, Barb, Bob, and Maribeth



This dedication is made in honor of my mother.
Myrtle Hubbard, the woman who taught me to love, respect, treat others with kindness. The mother who made me who I am today. I miss that mother so much in my life. I am thankful for the memories that I have, and her sense of humor that I keep in my heart. If I listen closely, sometimes I can still hear her speak my name. For now, she knows not who I am. I remain your baby girl.
Sonja



The burden of Love, is living with the helpless and knowing we cannot spare them the pain of losing themselves. Nor can we spare ourselves the pain of our own losses....



This is dedicated to our beloved mom Marguerite. She suffered much and now is at peace. She and Dad are together again never to suffer again. Many thanks to the Ribbon for all the help and support you have given. It will never be forgotten!!!! Love Maureen and Kathy



In memory of my Father....Howard....12-5-98

Do not stand at my grave and forever weep.
I am not there; I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn's rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and forever cry.
I am not there. I did not die.

My Father Howard made it "home" in time to join my Mother for Christmas.

I love you both and will forever miss you....Barbara



To Walt - thank you for the great 43 years we had together. It is too bad that almost 20 of them had you affected by Alzheimer's Disease. Even as late as August and Sept. you came through in those beautiful special moments. Your family loved and loved you. The grandkids are doing well, knowing,as our adult children know,that you are with family members known to us and not known o us. We cannot imagine the joy of seeing God face to face and seeing the beauty of Heaven. Thanks also to those who have made this dedication garden possible.



It wasn't so long ago, that I entered this place. Today is different though, I lost my Mother on Dec.27,1998,due to complications from Alzheimers. My mind races with things from the past, My Mother was a part of me, somehow the final link to who I am. I didn't think I could miss her more than I had in the years since she knew who I was. I was wrong. My heart cries out for Mom, and even though I no doubt she is in Heaven and at peace, my heart breaks....I wish Mother that it could have all been different. I hated to see you suffer. I know you would tell me not to cry for you, for you are in much better place than I. I am crying for me. I am lost without you now. I will find the strength to overcome, because I keep you in my heart.....Always, Sonja This is dedicated in memory of my Mother-Mrs. Hubbard.



This is dedicated to my mother in law who died on Dec. 14, 1998 of alzhiemer's. She was the best mother in law a person could have. Not once in my married life did I ever have one bad thing to say about her. I felt like she died twice. This is also dedicated to my mom. 2 days before my mother in law failed, my mom was diagnosed with the same awful disease. She is in the mild stage right now. Someone who loved and cared for me all her life. Now it is my time to turn the care around. I pray for her everyday. I love them both very much. Drnkbudlit



In loving memory of our PaPa January 20, 1999 Love is forever-Trials will end

WE LOVE YOU ALZJANE AND ARE ALWAYS THINKING OF YOU ,DAWN ,AND OF COURSE YOUR CHUCK. PRAYERS AND LOVE. NANCY SWEETP 1963



THIS IS DEDICATED TO MY MOM, FRANCES C. ALLISON. FROM BURLINGTON, NORTH CAROLINA. SHE IS 79 YRS. OLD WITH ALZHEIMERS AND HAS VASCULAR DISEASE. ON JANUARY 4th OF THIS YEAR, SHE HAD TO HAVE A TOE AMPUTATED DUE TO POOR CIRCULATION, NOT BEING ABLE TO TAKE CARE OF THE FOOT RIGHT NOW, SHE HAD TO BE PLACED IN A REHABILITATION CENTER. I MISS MY MOM DEARLY AND HAVE WRITTEN ALOT OF POETRY ABOUT HER AND THIS DREADFUL DISEASE THAT HAS STRIPPED HER OF ALL MEMORY.



This is dedicated to my precious husband of 30 years, Jerry DeMoe. You have blessed my life, you are my life, we are one. Not even Alzheimers can change that. I love you my dear, wonderful husband. Your loving wife, Sharon



This dedication is made to my Sister Ann, who has been the caregiver for our Mom for so long with Alzheimer`s without my help because she lives so far away. Even when Mom had to be put in a nurseing home, she is still the caregiver. I love her beyond words. Love You Much Nan



I love and miss you Gram



THIS DEDICATION TO MY MOM AND MAMAW! MY MOM IS THE MAIN CAREGIVER FOR MY MAMAW SHE HAS BEEN FOR 6 YEARS. GOD HAS GIVEN MY MOM THE STRENGTH AND PATIENCE TO ENDUR THIS HORRID COMPLICATION. WE HAVE SEEN MY MAMAW GO FROM A VIBRIANT UPBEAT GOING PERSON TO A LITTLE PERSON THAT JUST SITS AND DEPENDS ON US FOR HER LIFE. WE LOVE AND CARE FOR HER AS WELL AS WE CAN. I JUST HOPE IF I HAVE TO ENDURE THIS WITH MY MOM I CAN BE AS LOVING AND CARING AS SHE IS WITH HER MOM. I LOVE YOU BOTH SO VERY MUCH. THE FLOWER WHICH I HAVE CHOOSEN IS THE BLEEDING HEART BECAUSE IF YOU HAVE A HEART AND YOU KNOW SOMEONE WITH THIS PROBLEM YOUR HEART WILL BLEAD AND TEARS WILL FALL.



This is to thank my husband Don for his daily care of my grandfather who has multiple infarct dementia. Without him, my grandfather would probably not be here today. I can't express the gratitude enough for his daily caregiving skills as well as his commitment to my grandfather. I love you Don.



I dedicate this flower to my father, Harlan, who suffers from Alzheimers. He painted so many beautiful paintings in his lifetime and now no longer remembers that he had the ability to transform a canvas. This is also for my mother, Mary, who cares for him night and day. She has the courage and strength of a lion. I love you both, Paula



To my husband who would have stood beside me in a garden if he could. Bill is still here and will be turning 51 this summer and is much too young to have a progressive neurological disease.

LOSS
Death to part us and make us wise,
With sad-rimmed hippopotamus eyes;
Little birds pecking on our heads.

Sharon Sweet



I am remembering my mom, Margie on this Memorial Weekend. I lost her March 5, 1998 when she found her peace away from Alzheimer's. In her journey into Alzheimer's she became docile rather than combative. The essense that remained was the total goodness of a person; caring for her and being in her presence was like experiencing an angel, innocent and loving. Caregivers enjoyed working with her. Even in her illness she had so much to give, so much for those around her to receive. The years of caring for her were the hardest in my life, and the most rewarding. I miss her so. My thoughts and prayers are with all the families that are losing or have lost a loved one to this terrible, destructive marathon of disease. GivinCare@aol.com



This is dedicated to my mom Juliette Cicotte Jeffre from Southeast Texas. Who has been battling Alzheimer's for 10 years. I miss her hugs support and everything good about her. She was my mentor. I will always carry her in my heart. She was a loving wife mother and grandmother. She is in the last stages and I hope and pray she will be at peace soon. Mom I love you very much. Your daughter Judy Jstuc4@aol.com



This is dedicated to our Mother Dora Brown,she is singing with the Angels now. And she is with our Dad now, Bennie. They will suffer no more. Love Ann,Nan,Jan " I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth. He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber." PSALMS.121:1-3



This is dedicated to our cousin Peggy,who is caring for her Father and Mother. You will be in our prayers. God bless you. Love Ann, Nan, Jan



This is dedicated to my mom,Rosemary. Who throught the trials of my growing up, stuck with me. She always helped me keep my feet on the ground and taught me the best she knew how. She worked tirelessly with my father in his quest to better our lives. You know now Mom, that you don't have to remember names if you don't want to! I miss our Wednesday phone talks but know that when we meet again, we will be able to talk and talk and talk. I love you. Katie



This dedication is to my mother-in-law who has been struck down by this dreadful disease. Just 8 months ago she was a vibrant, loving, and bubbly human being...driving a car, shopping, swimming, etc. She is still that vibrant,loving,caring mother to me..I pray for her daily. Dedicated to Joan H. Myers.....Love Ken and Marilyn



We love you Grandma! - Alexandra, Matthew, Tyler, Jaclyn, Melanie, and Amanda



A tribute to my mom, Peg Jaeger, of Peoria,Il. A most wonderful mother, always there for me. What a lucky person I have been, she is not only my mother, but my friend. Mid stage AD has placed her in a wonderful dementia unit that cares for her as well as I would. God was looking out for us all the day that call came, 4/99. She is still my Mom, for now, and I enjoy every moment with her. I already miss the long talks, lunch and shopping outings, the togetherness we have always had. I am blessed to have the same, maybe even deeper, relationship with my own daugher. Thank you Mom, for showing me how to be a good mom. I will be by your side til the end. May God hold you in his hands as you continue your journey. I love you so much, Gayle



DEAR MOM, I KNOW THAT YOU ARE TRYING YOUR BEST AND ARE GIVING ALL OF YOURSELF TO CARE FOR MY DAD. I SEE THAT YOU ARE TIRED AND DEPRESSED AND YET YOU GO ON. YOU ARE A TOWER OF STRENGTH AND COMPASSION. I ADMIRE YOU AND LOVE YOU AND DAD A GREAT DEAL. I KNOW GOD IS WATCHING OVER YOU AND DAD. WITH MUCH LOVE, EDIE M.



Mom, I want to thank you for all that you did for me growing up and even after I was married. I just thank God that he gave me back the chance to take care of you when you got sick. I want to thank him for answering my prayers and not having to put you in a nursing home or hospital. I know that you were saved and that one day I will see you in heaven again. I thank you so much for giving your life to raise me . I love you very much. Your little girl Ann I miss you so much and it hurts so bad but i know God will get me through it. I am so thankful that I could keep you at home and take care of you up in till you took your last breath and went to be with the Lord. Here is the rose that i give you every year for your birthday and mother's day and all special days to last you till i get to heaven. I love you.



In memory of my grandmother, Rhoda. I won't forget you. Your memory lives on in my heart. I remember the stories, and the walks, and the times you read to me when I was small. For my mother, Jane, who took care of her without very much help until the very end. You are an inspiration, and I love you! ----Denise

Darling, have been trying to make some search to see if I could dedicate you any more songs. Want you to share with me what I like and love. In return I'll wanna know what you like and love too. Everyday I think of you, every nite I dream of you. Your voice, your laughter, your caressing, your kisses enhance me. I miss you every minute, every second, every moment. Before I sleep, I think of you, after I sleep, I dream of you, when I wake up, the first thing is to call you and talk to you, you fill my heart honey, and you fill my mind. I LOVE YOU HONEY RAYSON. Yes I do, I really do. Muakss...sss

And this dedication is also for Jamie, Karen and Jane, for all their help and support and for developing this wonderful resource to help others during this painful time.

After a year, I dedicate this rose to my mom, Frances C. Allison. Mom`s in Heaven with the Father and Mother she looked for so much during the three years of having alzheimers on February 14th of this year. I miss her so very much but I know she is in a better place, she`ll suffer no more. Peace be with you Mom, at least you know me now. I LOVE YOU ALWAYS, Tip



I dedicate these orchids to my mother, Carmel Cade, who in 1984 slipped off to be with her mother, brother and son. For many years she suffered with AD. We watched her leave her thoughts behind along with her energy, the energy she always used to keep all of us in tow. Always bouncing around doing 15 things at a time and helping me with my children. Now she is there to welcome the rest of the family when it is our turn. I know she is there helping my brother who is still here and now suffering from AD. We all feel her presence around us, we know things will be alright inspite of our sadness over all the losses we have had in the last few years. She, of course, was chosen by God to be the one to greet and help us make the transition to the other side. I know she will make it a joyous occasion as she did with everything. We love you and all your grandchildren still remember you. We miss you and will be glad to see you again. Your Daughter, Sally and your grandchildren, Teri, Michelle and Butch.

It`s been a year since mom passed away Yet I think of her each passing day Her soft sweet smile, the touch of her hand A feeling of peace now I understand Her memory is with her now again Alzheimers you lost, now we win! I dedicate this in memory of my mother, Frances C. Allison 2/10/20 - 2/14/00 Your Daughter, Sylvia



For Rosalyn who's mother passed away March 22, 2001. Her body has gone to the earth and it will become dust. Her spirit is in the air and it shall whisper to us from the wind. We shall hear it on running waters, in the music of a mockingbird or the lonely night cry of a soaring hawk. Her blood goes to make the red of the wildflowers and her soul will rest at midnight in the lily that only opens to the moon. She waits in the shadow of the trails when again she will walk beside us. I never new her but her daughter, Rosalyn, has the strength of an eagle and continues to soar throughout each day despite the struggle. I know you will miss her.
