My Neighbor Bernie

Praying for my neighbor Bernie O. He is in the later stages of Alzheimer’s disease. His daughters moved him into the neighborhood a few years ago so that they could be near him. He lost his wife just 6 months before he moved across the street from us. Both of his grown daughters live on the block and struggle with the decision to place him. I am so sorry to see him go to a nursing home but I know it was for his safety. He was getting lost and forgetting his way. He was so sad when it was time to go. I pray that his transition is comforted with loving friends, family, and caretakers.
