    Go through those photos if you want to know what photography is, or better yet, why it is.

    It hits close, my grandfather was just like that and as time went by I found it harder to cope with his sickness...it was heartbreaking to see him die a little bit each week, I thought it would never end, my grandfather would pray to die and in the madness of my family trying to get new doctors, new treatments, new things to keep him alive I tried to obtain the most of him before that last day. I tried to really talk to him, I tried to ask him for advice, I told him very personal stuff, I tried to recover for lost time...why are we like that?

    What an amazing work that website is.

    anyone who's had a loved one with some form of dementia I'm sure this hit really close to home.... it's the hardest thing in the world to see someone you loved and respected not know who you are. I only wish I would have done something like this with my grandfather before he died... something to remember the times he was good, and not the times when things were bad.
