Extraordinary person. Ordinary People and their Extraordinary Stories.

Alzheimer’s is a terrible disease, but one thing my in-laws discovered was their mother loved music and music sparked her memory of other moments in her life. I met my mother-in-law in the last eight years of her life, but she always remembered my name and she loved coming to my house. Angelo would play her the music she loved. He even took his keyboards to the home just 2 blocks from our house & he played for her right up until the end.
Find out what music the Alzheimer’s patient listened to. And bring that music to him/her.
A very wonderful way to remind people who they were. I would love to be part of a project like this. It is a tribute to the entire family!
Peace & blessings,
Sherrie

JQ: Yes. Many of the people I meet are ill, lonely and rarely visited by family. They look forward to speaking to me. I meet them all in person. Some interviews take 5 hours. Some 30 minutes. I take their picture. All with their consent or consent of a family member.

As he describes his “hobby,” I take an inventory of recent posts: Snoopy. A cat video…
