My husband I have been married for 54 years. We have faced many challenges in that time that have put our love to the test, but it was those challenges that allowed us to grow in love. When Don was diagnosed with dementia 10 years ago, it was another challenge that has grown a deeper and lasting love. That love has given us the strength to face the daily challenges of dementia.
