2 Sisters With Alzheimer's Reunite

2 Sisters With Alzheimer's Reunite

It’s never easy to watch a loved one experience a disease such as Alzheimer’s. They rob people of their memories and take away a lot of what makes up a person’s personality. Anyone who has fought this heartbreaking disease will tell you that certain parts of losing your memory hurt way more than others.


Sisters Ann Patrick and Marguerita Wilson haven’t seen each other in more than 15 years. Sadly, both sisters suffer from Alzheimer’s. But today, these long lost sisters are reuniting and it’s such a beautiful moment. 88-year-old Marguerita’s condition is not as advanced as her sisters, so she immediately recognized Ann. She burst into tears and embraced her sister in a sweet hug. There are so many emotions in this moment that you can’t help but tear up yourself.

Both women recognize something familiar in the other, even if they can’t quite put their finger on it. They come together just like they see each other every day, without missing a single beat. Even though they may not remember this encounter, thankfully, someone decided to film it all so everyone will be able to cherish this moment for years to come.

I can’t imagine the heartache it must be to watch your loved ones go through this terrible disease, but moments of hope like this make the days much better. I’m praying for all the families going through similar situations right now. Just know that God is with you each step of the way and He will never leave your side.
