My Grandma made me pancakes in the shape of anything I could imagine - giraffes, Mickey Mouse, unicorns, and of course full moons. Those childhood breakfasts are cherished memories of family gathered together with Grandma at the center in her frilly apron.

I remember that she laughed easily, always had a lap for you to sit in, and that she loved frogs. Of course, Kermit the Frog was her favorite but I remember he was among many friends in the room I slept in at her house. That bedroom was filled with frog figurines on shelves covering each wall. There was no doubt that she was a fun loving person; a pretty perfect Grandma and a wonderful wife and mother too. 


That is how I want to remember her, spatula in hand laughing with us at breakfast. Unfortunately we also had to witness a slow and painful decline until we lost her to Alzheimer's. At first she simply misplaced things or forgot a meeting but over time it progressed to forgetting people, forgetting how to care for herself, and finally forgetting who she was. Such a terrible loss.


Many of us joke about forgetfulness and old age. I wish Alzheimer’s stopped with a little forgetfulness. The final stages of Alzheimer’s are no joke and it would be a wonderful thing if no other families had to witness or experience this loss of a loved one.


I hold the memory of my Grandma dear to my heart and so I created this Memory Puzzle Pack.

This puzzle pack includes word search, cryptogram and acrostic puzzles. $6.00 goes directly to support Alzheimer's Society of Canada.
