When Dotty Went to Heaven She Had Learned Her Final Life Lesson


Share/Save/Bookmark

Dotty was always convinced she could take "care" of herself, and then something changed.

When Dotty Went to Heaven She Had Learned Her Most Important Life Lesson
Dorothy DeMarco
95 Years Old
Dorothy Olive DeMarco was born on June 29, 1916. She went to Heaven on May 25, 2012. Today is Dotty's birthday, she would have been 96 years old.

I was convinced for thirty years that Dotty would live to be more than one hundred years old. I did waver on this a bit when Alzheimer's disease came into our lives.

Around 2004, I came to a very different conclusion. I started to believe that Dotty would go to Heaven if and only if she learned the most important lesson of her life.

I can say that with the exception of her brain, Dotty was a "healthy old broad". She told this to everyone that would listen right up until very close to the end.

Once again, and as usual, all I can say is, more there. I really didn't expect to see what I saw.

Dotty Sings Letter, Discusses Poop

I'm Gonna Sit Right Down and Write Myself a Letter

Dotty Sings briefly, "I'm Gonna Sit Right Down and Write Myself a Letter"

"I'm Gonna Sit Right Down and Write Myself a Letter" was first recorded and made popular by Fats Waller in 1935.

Dotty was listening to the music channel, and when this song came on she started singing. I was caught off guard so I only caught a snippet. What do you think?

Dotty Needs to Poop

Dotty can be graphic in the use of her words and descriptions. She "needs to use the toilet in this one". Comments?

Dotty's Says, I'm Not Dead Yet You Dipshit

Persons living with Alzheimer's don't want your pity, they want your help, understanding, and love.

Alzheimer's Reading Room

Dotty Einstein
My name is Dorothy DeMarco. You can call me Dot. I'm 95 years old and according to my son Bobby, I have Alzheimer's disease.

I'm not suffering from Alzheimer's disease, I have Alzheimer's disease.

Before we get started, do you see that picture on the left? Bobby says we have to use that picture in this article because I will be giving all of you some insight and advice about persons living with Alzheimer's.

Bobby calls the picture, Dotty Einstein. He claims that calling me Einstein is a compliment. Bobby's mind does work in mysterious ways. Here is what I think about the picture. Kiss my ass Bobby.
