Thanks, Angela. I thought it was Alzheimer's that her mother had, but was not sure. Thank goodness she will be spared the pain of knowing her daughter is gone. And thank goodness for Mike, who will make a great guardian-like person for his "Mom".
And I am also glad that Mike made the decisions he made and can feel proud of himself. The kids too will appreciate it when they are old enough to understand how important they are to him.
