The Last Granny: Journal of an Alzheimer's Daughter
by Claudia Jokinen
The Last Granny: Journal of an Alzheimer's Daughter is a celebration of the life of the authors mother. While Jokinen was truly saddened by her mothers death, the author was encouraged by the new beginning for her mother, the return to personal dignity and the removal of all pain. The authors mother was Amazing Grace, world traveler, and a Simon Legree educator, always seeming surer of herself than was supported by her inner confidence.
The author thanks her mother for her joyous, contagious laugh, for her elegant sense of style, for being wherever Jokinen was for all of her birthdays and for her mothers great ideas for interesting weekend and summer activities.
