In these short, poignant, brutally honest poems, the poet Ann Holmes gives us deep insight into the experience of someone with Alzheimer’s and of the person who loves and cares for him, Holmes sometimes affectionately refers to as “The Old Man.” Reading these poems, one experiences the sadness, frustration, humor, pathos, exasperation, tenderness, helplessness, anger, affection, caring for a long loved husband who cannot be reached inside. The title, Alzheimer’s Chronicles: When The Past Is Not Present, powerfully expresses the essence of these poems. She says so much with so few words that speak to your mind as well as touch your heart and your emotions. You won’t be the same after you have read them. Rev. Don Postema, Glacier Hills Senior Living Community resident. “You Seem to be finding humor to ease the difficulty of navigating the world of the forgetful.” – Megan Holmes, Daughter of Jack and Ann Holmes Front Cover Art by Jane Mason Painting of Ann Holmes by Frank Bruckmann
