12 months ago today my mom took her last breaths and her pain was gone. That day was made more difficult in that Presley had passed a few months prior and Mom did not know. She was unaware because of her dementia. We could not tell her and allow her to ruminate.

I so wanted to talk to her about Presley’s medical condition while Presto fought. I also hoped to ask her questions about how to accept the loss of a child. You see, David and I watched her deal and grieve for years over the loss of our younger brother and sister Aaron and Shannon when we were kids.

I longed to tell her about how strong Presley was in fighting her illness. It was inspiring. I hoped to tell her how much Presley was like her. How much of Presley’s strength came from her. How much of my strength comes from her.

Mom, I longed to hear her your reassuring words and wisdom from DOING and BEING. You always had words that were soothing even if they stung.

My only comfort is that I know you are not in pain any more and your babies were waiting for you. Please kiss Presley, Aaron, Shannon, and Dad for us.

RIP because you are Loved, Remembered, and Revered.

Vigilance about vision in older adults is critical for early detection of disease and more manageable and more reliable treatment. As we age, visual impairment is one of the most common physical losses. Many eye conditions that cause vision loss and blindness are not diagnosed until extreme measures are needed. Visual impairment is not just an annoying symptom of aging - it makes driving dangerous for older drivers and other road users alike; causes headaches, irritability, and even depression; and can make it challenging to read directions for things like medications. Some of the most common eye conditions that can affect your loved one are yellow spot degeneration, glaucoma, and cataracts.
