Art: ex-voto (alzheimers) by Artist Amie R Gillingham
this piece is dedicated in loving memory to my grandfather who died of complications relating to alzheimer's disease in july 1999.

i feel this piece is a strong representation of what happened to my grandfather's mind as the disease progressed; all of his memories became jumbled into one lump so as to become useless or inaccessible. names, words, dates all became meaningless, leaving the rest of his book...blank.
