Cast Adrit on a Sea of Insanity

   I live in an unreal world.  My neighbors, all as aged as I, wander the halls looking for their parents, or ask directions to the dining room even in their second or third year of residence, or laugh hysterically at spilled milk or dropped tableware.

   Charlotte and I used to stay afloat on our own little raft of rational thought looking at the waves senility that broke around us. Now she is gone.  I miss her terribly.

I, too, am very sorry for the loss of your friend. I am hoping that a new friend comes along soon to join you on your raft of rational thought. I am sure that it gets lonely without Charlotte. We all need someone to relate to. You have so many amazing things to talk about, too. I hope your wait  for a new companion will be short.
Love,
Laura

I can only imagine how a part of you feels empty without her.  Sometimes it seems the little things that we remember are the biggest things in our heart.

Chuck, I am so, so sorry.  And how scary it must be to see people lose some of their capacities.  So sorry.  I love you Chuck!  You remain in my prayers!  Val xox
