This card is going to the Arbors Memory Care facility in Sparks Nevada to any caregiver. I am grateful that there are no family members so far, that suffer Alzheimer's Disease. Through friends I know this disease is very hard to deal with. So this is for those that professionally or personally take care of Alzheimer's patients. Thank you!!!
Inside I have written per Mothermark's instructions on a post it, the following.
Thank you for the care that you give.
You make it easier for Alzheimer's patients and their families to live.
As the cliche goes, "it's in the mail"
Except for the stamp, base card, and the jewels, everything on this card came from either my Mom or Lisa. So thanks to you both!

I am very familiar with Alzheimer's and the devastation it causes family members. Not only that, but being a caregiver to someone with this disease is a monumental task. It really resembles taking card of a child. It's horribly sad to see the ravages of this disease, but I am elated your card will be going to someone who does a job that is so amazingly difficult. Your card is exquisite.
