    Thank you for setting that scene up for me. I didn’t have time to re-read it so this helps me picture it in my head a bit more. Didn’t she have a rope tied around her too? I bet it was something really hard to see. Yes, most of my grandparents have passed now but two of them suffered from dementia and it is an impossible situation because you love them so much but they aren’t the person you once knew which is probably how the husband felt. They say the best thing to do with people especially with mental decline is to keep engaging their brain in simple activities! So maybe being in that room alone a lot of the time was a big factor in her quick decline.
