Book Description
This is a book of "courage, endurance and love." It is the story of Violet and Bob Ruelokke who were forced to redirect their lives to face a frightening reality, dementia. What challenges arise when one is confronted by the fact that a loved one is "there yet not there?* What important questions have to be answered, how does one cope? How Violet and Bob coped is set out here in a series of beautifully written passages meant to inform and inspire us.
* Quotes in this paragraph from are by Christine Way, Ph.D., Memorial University.

"I have one reason for writing this book," says the author, "to share my experience of being a care giver to my late husband bob in hope it will help others who may face a similar challenge."
