First the funny stuff , watching mom in the later years was always a trip ! While she was still pretty sharp I used to take her to my secret swimming hole where she would stay in the wheelchair and me and the dogs would go swimming. During our first outing I wheeled her about 2 blocks to our spot, before the last stretch the path is covered in trees and a little ominous looking as it was darker and a narrow path. I stopped and mom looked down the path and turned to me and said slyly " your not going to leave me here are you ?" , I always laugh about that, the kind of comments I will miss !
