In March of this year,my grandma was placed in a home for folks with dementia and Alzheimers. There was this lady named Leona who was 104 who ever since she was placed there the year before,refused to speak to ANYONE. When my grandma saw that lady sitting there in the dining room,she made a beeline right to her and took her hand and starting singing to her. Leona took to her from that moment and starting speaking. My grandma would braid her hair,and they'd do crafts together.
My grandma passed away last Monday and when Leona heard this,she shut down and went back to silence. She got sick on Tuesday,and never got out of her bed again. She passed away this afternoon.
I'll bet my grandma and Leona are sitting in the garden singing away!
