“This thing called ‘dementia.’ An experience of the darkest night, some might say. And yet, we know that light is brighter when darkness is darker. Could it be that God has allowed the dark plague of dementia, in all its forms throughout the world, to help us see the light of His Love? Ellen’s love for God and for her husband, combined with her strong faith and hope, enabled her to fully embrace her husband’s illness and to companion him in the commitment of compassionate love.
It is truly a story of faith, hope, and unconditional love.” – Fr. Angelus Shaughnessy, O.F.M. Cap.
