I suppose I'm fortunate not to want my memories to fade - And fortunately they don't. And on the other hand it is heartbreaking for those whose memories fade and yet they don't want them to. And equally sad it is for those who would like to forget things in life and yet they can't.
Thanks Alec for your comment - This is an image inspired by my mother who has Alzheimer's - I have included "Memory a candle flame, too easily extinguished." in the comment section of the image as I think it is very fitting - I hope you don't mind.
