NELSON-JOHNSON L Purple Was Her Color Full

Purple Was Her Color

Life’s puzzle begins simply as a child, each piece fitting together neatly and colored with the primary colors of mom, dad, and siblings.  Teenage relationships and marriage, symbolized by secondary colors, are added.  Tertiary colors represent family life with children, grandchildren and eventually great-grandchildren.  For those with Alzheimer’s, it is at this time in life that the puzzle pieces begin to misalign.  The color wheel of life, memories and people fade to white.
