This is a poem written about my grandfather David Eugene Fuller who had Alzheimer's.

I loved him SO dearly and miss him every single day.

You are such a lovely,

unselfish person.

Somewhat known now,

But even I remember when you were displayed more smoothly.

and the stories,

the many stories,

of a life filled with love, adventure, importance, knowledge and humor,

what a life!

What a wonderful life.

In many ways some could look at your defect as unfair,

and although it is,

God has a reason for everything,


I have to say that sometimes to myself to feel hopeful.

You have always been a joy in the lives of many,

I know this for a fact.

Especially my own life.

I understand you and I know with patience,

I can dig deep with you and find more than what meets the eye.

You are one of my best friends,

and maybe you don't remember my name every time,

but I know 100% that you love me,

Your granddaughter.

Sometimes I feel others forget your feelings and converse before you,

about you,

like you are not even there.

You might not be all there,

but I know you have feelings as I do.

You will never know how much a little joke you say,

or maybe a smile or a slow dance means to me,

but it means the world!

I find a comfort in you that is rare and meaningful.

I love you so much with all of my heart, papa.
