Such a horrible disease. One of our neighbours got it when she was in her fourties, she died when she was not even 50. This work is moving but also scaring as you get a reminder of what could happen. You don’t want to wish this to your worst enemy. He was a brave man to share his work with us.
I so agree. And maybe that’s why it haunts me so. It could be any of us one day.
You can’t think of it too often as it will drive you mad but sometimes you meet someone with a horrible disease and you think; oh my God, I hope I’ll be spared from this. It’s only human I think.
Yes. I pray that if this sad disease comes to me I am able to record my losses as William did. To show that there is a mind there until the very end.
