A failing memory is like a blessing to an aging individual since he will not remember anymore the sad moments that happened in life. As I was talking to an elderly widow friend over the phone today, I can feel the sad tone in her voice but when I asked her how she is this Christmas, she pretended to be okey but has to ask me the same questions 5 times with an apology that she doesn’t remember anymore almost everything about me and my family. She used to be very quick when it comes to recalling persons and events and it was just last year when I talked to her. Now at 93, I can understand her mental state and though she is now alone at home, but at least she is not that sad and lonely.
