A Tribute to Vijay, inspiring fight with Alzheimer’s
It was sad to know the demise of Vijay on 21st Jan 2011. Vijay had early onset of Alzheimer’s and was fighting it out for nearly 12yrs.
He was family loving person and music was one of his hobbies. During his Alzheimer’s days, I still remember him Whistling song and playing popular song with Mouth Organ.
The family was just with him; they provided him 24x 7 care at home and did everything possible to fight the disease. They showered him with love and caring.
His wife Anu was his darling and she kept balance in managing home and work. His children have never left him alone. They all supported him to be independent till he can.
Hats off to the family who care for him and never allowed Alzheimer’s to become obstacle.
But Alzheimer at end won, it took away Vijay from all of us. It’s sad that since hundred years , the medical science has not found cure to this deadly Alzheimer’s disease.
But Vijay and his family will always be inspiring us and remind us to be more proactive and passionate towards the person and family suffering from Alzheimer’s. They will always remind me that Love and Care is the only medicine for Dementia & Alzheimer's.
Just a small tribute to our beloved Vijay
Remember me with smile not with tears,
For all the joy through all the years.
Recall the closeness that was ours,
A Love as ‘sweet’ as fragrant flowers.
Don’t dwell on thoughts that cause you pain,
We’ll see each other once again,
Iam at peace….try to believe,
It was my Time… I had to leave.
But ‘what a view’ I have from here,
I see your face, I feel you near.
I follow you throughout the day,
You are not alone along the way.
I Love you and want you to be happy always.
The angels are always near to those who are grieving, to whisper to them that their loved ones are safe in the hand of God.
