A “Memory Quilt” – what a beautiful gift for an Alzheimer’s patient.

A “Memory Quilt” – what a beautiful gift for an Alzheimer’s patient.

After 35 years and over 300 Triathlons all over the world, what do you do with about 300 t-shirts?  Well, you donate 100 of them to a Nicaraguan village on a trip to visit some friends.  You put about 50 of them in your drawers to rotate and wear daily.  You pick your favorites and ones that represent your greatest feats.  Then you have a t-shirt blanket made!

Two years ago Gordon didn’t want to have a blanket made……thought it wasn’t necessary.  As Alzheimer’s has progressed I figured this is something that he would cherish on down the road as he moves into a facility.  He loved the blanket when it arrived the other day. We both cried!  It is now a mainstay on his bed!

Make it a great day!
