My mom passed away last week and I’ve been in Massachusetts for the week to be with my family. Alzheimer’s disease is difficult for families. I have talked with many friends who tell me that their family has been through an Alzheimer’s death. Visiting New England for the services reminds me of the differences between Silicon Valley and Boston. One of the biggest differences is the sizes of families.
