We could start our own denomination...

My husband and I live in rural Michigan. We are members of a small Methodist church with roughly 60 members.

The unofficial count of church members who have someone in their immediate family with Alzheimer's disease is five -- nearly 10 percent of this very small congregation. While it's devastating that we have that many in our congregation living this nightmare, we also have an unofficial support group -- almost a family, if you will.

God does work in mysterious ways -- one of them was bringing this "family" together. Though I don't wish this disease on anyone, it does help to be around folks going through the same thing.
