These are a few of the comments I have received in email messages from friends and new acquaintances in the United States and other countries.

“Was very impressed with your book.  It was an easy read and I couldn't put it down.  I will be showing it to my Roundtable group next Wednesday.  I may loan it out but I do want to keep it." Addie

“What a tremendous job you have done, Jean.  I scanned through it at first, started to read and didn't put it down until my husband asked if we were going to eat dinner sometime. It is such a tribute to your folks and to your dedication to them. And last, but not least, it is so very well written and interesting. When I finish, I will give it to my daughter. (altho she is so very excellent at taking the same good care of the two of us, but she will find it a good read, too.)" JoAnne

"As the day comes near for my mother to require more assistance from her children, I constantly look for ideas and experiences of others that will be helpful.  Your emphasis on how rewarding those years were gives me new hope that it may be the same for me/us.  Thank you and God bless you for your valuable insight."  Connie

"I have spent the last couple of hours reading your story.  What can I say?  You are a caring person, and the highest compliment I can give you is that your parents would be proud of you."  Diane

-------------------------------------------

"I have just finished reading your story. You did a wonderful job. It had to have been a labor of love."  Millie

-------------------------------------------

"Mom has been getting angry and giving everyone around her some pretty mean looks. None of us take it personally and if I tell her in a light hearted way that she's being grouchy she pats my hand and says she's sorry."  Pam

-------------------------------------------

"I've wanted to share with someone like you one little thing that my brother stumbled upon. Sometimes when any of our elderly got frantic about something that we couldn't comprehend my brother would put his arm around that person in a loving way and say, "I don't think that's something you need to worry about."  It was amazing how often it helped.  Just saying that made the person feel we had recognized a need they had, but it wasn't something they needed to worry about so they could calm down."  RubyLee

"You are doing great things in helping so many care for their loved ones!  I'm not the type who normally responds like this but wanted to speak up for the 'silent majority' who are being helped that you may not always hear from.  God BlessYou!!!!!"  Kirby

-------------------------------------------

"You are to be commended.  I admire what you are doing! My first response was to write you with a big thank you and expression of appreciation."  Ed

-------------------------------------------

"Keep up your good work for others, you have been a big help to me!"  Becky

-------------------------------------------

"I have been taking care of my mother for three years now.  ...  It's tough taking in your parents but think of what they did for you.  Good luck to all that try.  It's hard on the family but hang in there."  John

-------------------------------------------

"I loved your site.  As the day comes near for my mother to require more assistance from her children, I constantly look for ideas and experiences of others that will be helpful.  Your emphasis on how rewarding those years were gives me new hope that it may be the same for me/us.  Thank you and God bless you for your valuable insight."  Connie

-------------------------------------------

"There are so many hurting people out there that NEED to know they are not alone!!!"  Debi

-------------------------------------------

"I admire your loving tenacity, your willingness to stay the course.  ...  I anticipate, because of the demographics, that your level of family care will become more normal as we ... will begin to swamp the health care system."  Dick

-------------------------------------------

"I have spent the last couple of hours reading 'your story.'  What can I say?  You are a caring person, and the highest compliment I can give you is that your parents would be proud of you."  Diane

What a wonderful site!  I just ... wanted to take a minute to commend you."  Kathy
