Originally, I journal-ed to help me get through the ups and downs and the effects of Alzheimer’s Disease on my Dad, Mom, family and myself. My journal turned into a journal of memoirs and now a book. I’m hopeful it is helpful to you and others and keeps the memory of my Dad alive as well. Because of our story, I’m finding an opportunity to help and be available to others as we share our unique experiences.
While my primary goal is not the sale of my book, I thought it might be appropriate to share a few testimonials which have blessed me greatly.

“We received your books in fine shape. We have them read already. Could not put it down. Will no doubt re-read it myself. I think it was well written. While saddened by your loss of your Dad, I felt the witness of faith in God’s love and love of family and friends heartwarming. I lost a friend some years back to Alzheimer’s and am able to relate a little bit. Thank you for His Name Was Merle!”

“Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! What a great book. I’m like your wonderful Mom. I’ve already read it once and I’m about 1/2 way the second time. And also, like your Mom, I’ve found different meanings and things I just did not get until reading it again. Is there another one to follow? Everything you wrote about your Dad was more than truthful. He was a great, great person and oh how he loved Audrey and the rest of his family. I’ve loaned my book to family members who also knew Merle as a great fellow. Thanks again Lynda. I so thank you and hope all your books sell out.

“We thank you for the wonderful book about Merle. We appreciate the insights that you have because each of our mothers had Alzheimer’s. With the genetic component, we too are at some risk. I probably won’t get it as I’m showing no signs at this age. It’s good to be optimistic but I do have some short term memory signs so who knows.” We enjoyed the Eagle tree story and picture. We are all fragile, but hopefully some insight gained from Merle’s book will help us steer the rest of the way. Thank You.

Your book was so powerful, I couldn’t put it down. I finished it Tuesday night about 9:00. I found it to be so interesting and informative. Thank you for giving me this insight. Your words of “acceptance” and “to remember the person and not the disease” especially hit home with me… You are truly a gifted person…………My words don’t convey the emotion I felt as I read your book

First of all, I want to say “thank you” for your book. It was very compelling to read. it was hard to put down until i’d finished reading the entire book. Lynda —aside from your family story — you really are a good writer in your own right (or “write”).
