I met your mom at Orchard Park in 2012 when my former mother-in-law/best friend moved there for her last 9 months on earth. I was there nearly every day and sometimes more than once so I had many occasions to interact with Lucille. She was often quite lucid. Of course there were other times too. But I enjoyed her very much! She was what I would call a colorful character! She showed me the family pictures in her room more than once and seemed very proud! She did still care about how her hair looked too! After she moved away, I asked several times about how she was doing. Even if the nurses knew,they were not allowed to tell me. So I hoped she was where the staff was understanding and helpful. I marvel at how she made such a lasting impression on me in such a short time when she was, even then, not quite herself. My prayers are with you. Cherish the good memories!
