2013 Walk to End Alzheimer’s of North Fulton/Gwinnett

2013 Walk To #EndALZ: We Did It #4GERRIE, #4NAY & #4FAMILY

Wish I could find words to express what Saturday, October 5th meant to me — 2 months to the day of Mom’s passing. We did it #4GERRIE, #4NAY and #4FAMILY. Though the way forward for me is certainly with a broken heart, it’ll also be filled with lots of laughter and my beyond-crazy Family marching along beside me!

#4GERRIE’S WALK PAGE: Let’s END Alzheimer’s Disease!

#4GERRIE'S WALK PAGEJOIN TEAM #4GERRIE & Help Us END ALZHEIMER’S DISEASE!

GERALDINE BARWICK (July 6, 1941 to August 5, 2013) was so much more than the fragile shell left behind by Alzheimer’s Disease.

Our “Gerrie” was brilliant, fearless, funny, loyal and loving. She adored life, laughter, fine clothing and most of all – FAMILY!

Gerrie took her rest on August 5, 2013, four years to the day of her formal August 5, 2009 Alzheimer’s Disease/Dementia diagnosis.

Though her family will FOREVER miss her presence, we Gerrie’s children, grandchildren, extended family and friends will honor her memory by continuing to support Alzheimer’s Disease Awareness and Prevention through ADVOCACY + ACTION!

Our prayer, our goal is to live to celebrate the END of ALZHEIMER’S DISEASE!

On Saturday, October 5th, beginning at 8:30AM, we’ll travel to Atlanta to walk #4GERRIE and join our cousins, Bell Family Memories in fighting back against the toll Alzheimer’s Disease has taken on our loved ones, Gerrie and Nate, and us as a family!

I have to believe that our newest Family arrival in Heaven, Geraldine is standing with Cousins Elbert and Nettie BENTON STRINGER, smiling and cheering us on!:)

My Mama NEVER gave-up on anything! We’re doing exactly what Gerrie would do –> STAND. FIGHT. NEVER QUIT!
