Project 365 2.0: May 11, 2012 | Day 163

This is the newest addition to my turtle collection. This sea turtle is from my grandmother. She suffers from Alzheimer's and does not remember a lot of things or who people are the majority of the time. It's really sad because she sometimes thinks my grandfather is still alive and is just out shopping (he's been gone over 25 years). But for some reason, my grandma has never forgotten that I like turtles. She has a ton of stuffed animals and knick knacks all over her house, and she's been giving a lot of it away the past few years. Every time she comes across a turtle, it reminds her of me. My mom takes care of her and sees her almost every day says that is one of the only things she remembers correctly and consistently.
