"To Remember Us By"
NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC - YOUR SHOT
National Geographic, Because of Her, curated by Amy Toensing & David Y. Lee, November 2017 - "As my mother's memory faded, she required 24/7 supervision in a Memory Care Unit. They suggested we surround her with some of her favorite things for comfort & in hopes of jogging her memory. We loaded her bureau with photos of her children & grandkids, her prized bowling trophy, stuffed animals, and art which helped for a short time; however, on this day she vacantly stared ahead, as seen in this reflection, showing little recognition. It ultimately just wasn't enough to sustain her."
