Alzheimer’s Prayer Dear Lord, Please grant my visitors tolerance for my confusion, Forgiveness for my irrationality And strength to walk with me into the mist of memory my world has become. Please help them take my hand and stay awhile Even though I seem unaware of their presence. Help them know their strength and loving care will drift softly into the days to come Just when I need it most. Let them know when I don’t recognize them, that I will, I will… Keep their hearts free of sorrow For me…for my sorrow, when it comes, Only lasts a moment – then it’s gone. And finally Lord, Please let them know how very much their visits mean, How even through this relentless mystery – I feel their love. Peace is with you dear sister and auntie Lil. We love you forever. Funeral services will be held at Desjardins Funeral Chapel, 357 Des Meurons Street, on Wednesday, July 21 at 1:00 p.m. immediately followed by a reception.
