This is my Mum Elsie. She had a tough life and developed Alzheimer's but died suddenly of a heart attack not quite 3 years ago, aged 73. It was a both a shock and a blessing for us, her children not to have to witness the inevitable cruelness of this sad and distressing disease. In what seemed a short space of time she went from this clever lady who fulfilled a lifetime ambition to earn a degree at the age of 60 to not knowing how to switch the computer on, tell the time, use the phone, cook for herself and was going rapidly down hill.

This is my small offering to help raise a little bit of money for this amazing organisation AAQI trying to help raise funds into research and a cure for this terrible illness. I hope someone will take pity on it and love it enough to buy it and give it some wall space. If my little offering is not to your taste then maybe there is another one that you will like.

You will find it at

It is titled Elsie, measures 9" x 12" and is number 14,789 and costs $40. Postage will be extra.

Thank you to everyone involved for all their efforts and endeavours. It is much appreciated.

Shirley. x
