Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you; not as the world giveth, give I unto you.  Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.  John 14:27

This past summer I visited a nephew who has been diagnosed with extreme dementia.  He can no longer manage his financial affairs or attend to simple household duties.  He struggles with names and places and cannot remember what happened yesterday.  He once taught music on the college level and was Minister of Music in the church he attended.
