Coffee with Mom testimonial 4


Jun 3rd

Mike Glenn and I walked a similar journey and, in the end, had the distinct honor of caring for and serving the first person that cared for and served each of us. In my case—it was my dad who struggled with dementia in his latter years. In Mike’s case, it was his mom who was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. In both cases, it became one of the most difficult and one of the most honoring opportunities of our lives. Mike and I have been friends for years. We have so many of the same interests and concerns. We both are crusaders for justice, for racial unity, and so many other things. But I believe our strongest connecting point was each of our callings to being a caregiver to a parent patient. Whether you find yourself in a similar situation or whether you know someone who is—this is a fabulous love story of a son loving and caring for his mother.
