by: Aryn Gatto It’s that time of the year again: our New Year’s resolutions may be in the rear view mirror, work is keeping you on your toes (or rather seated at your desk!), and although there are little signs of spring appearing here and there, winter continues to linger, not yet having released its grasp and make room for all things spring, which tend to encourage us to go for that spontaneous evening jog or Sunday bike ride.

Aryn Gatto is new to the Memory Ball team this year. Aryn's passion and enthusiasm have been a huge gain for the Memory Ball team and we welcome her big smile and creative spirit.  Here are some words Aryn shared with us about her grandmother, who is living with Alzheimer’s disease, and some reflections on their relationship.  I have often thought that the following Shakespeare quotation aptly suits my Baubie: “And though she be but little, she is fierce.” Albeit a bit on the shorter side, my Baubie has always demonstrated remarkable strength.  Having lost her husband at a young age, my Baubie raised three children, including my wonderful mother, all on her own.  She took care of us as kids just about every Saturday for as long as I can remember.  She taught us how to tie our shoes, read to us, and took us on walks and little adventures around her neighbourhood. She always ensured that we left her house well-fed, made sure that we didn’t go outside with wet hair on those cold, winter days, and sent us home with a Dixie cup full of treats.  These are the little things that I know I, and my sisters, will always cherish.Snapseed All this to say, although it is difficult to watch our Baubie change and her Alzheimer’s disease progress, she has played a big part in my life and who I am today – that will never change.
