Now, Hear This

Dear All of Us,

A kind friend sent this video to me today. This other daughter of Alzheimer’s has found a wonderful way to share her mother’s story with tenderness and humor. Together, they’ve amassed a Twitter following of 1,000.

I thought it might be time to hear another point of view, so here goes:

I dare you not to fall in love with Mary Anges Kelley, age 82 years young and heartbreakingly hilarious and greatly loved by her own warm, funny, oddball gal.

Love,

Me

P.S. It’s interesting that the comment “hole in my head” comes up in this short clip, just as it does in my pal’s very  moving film, “There’s No Hole in My Head.” Check out the trailer for that film here.
