WHO FORGOT WHO SHE WAS..
By SHARON FLETCHER JONES
is a collection of narratives that speak to who my mother was, how she lived and how she loved. Now written in memoriam, the book’s original title was “For Mama, For When She Forgets Who She Is” and was intended to help her navigate the onset of Alzheimer’s disease. It was also meant to help those of us who knew and loved her to better cope with her physical and mental decline. Some of the stories are funny while others are sad. However, most of them are inspiring, I hope. In writing this book, I wanted to capture the essence of the woman-child, lioness-queen who was Margaret Leslie Jones Gatling. I wanted to record everything I could about this woman who always used her superpowers for good. Once the disease started to progress, immediate family members and I quickly turned our attention to ensuring the best quality of life to the very end. Again, I am hopeful that this book will provide solace, comfort and inspiration to other families who are dealing with the beasts of mental illness and brain disease. These stories are love letters to her, to those left to mourn her loss and to the readers.
