My mother loves old songs – You are my sunshine being one of her favorites.  She likes to tell us how she could’ve been a singer in another life. Even as dementia steals her memories, the words to these songs remain.

Kind-hearted folks volunteer to visit and entertain the residents of Memory Lane. And on this day, they brought a microphone and musical accompaniment, and Mama sang loud and clear, happy to be the center of attention.

Some days skies are gray and sadness seeps in, but on this day Mama is our sunshine.
