Early Praise for Missing Mary

missing-mary-cover“A heartfelt depiction of one family’s journey through Alzheimer’s disease, filled with many practical tips to make things better.” – Peter V. Rabins, MD, MPH, author of The 36-Hour Day and founding director of the Division of Geriatric Psychiatry and Neuropsychiatry at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine

“Miss Mary nearly charmed herself out of Alzheimer’s, or as Keith McMullin says, Oldzheimerz. Near the end, he asks: “How much of life turns on a whisper, such as ‘I love you’ or ‘Good-bye?’” I typed and printed this sentence. It sits on my desk as a poignant reminder to pay attention to the ones I love.” – Rosemary Rawlins, author of Learning by Accident: A Caregiver’s True Story of Fear, Family, and Hope

“Alzheimer’s is a devastating disease and one I know first-hand as a nurse and daughter. Between the tears and laughs, Missing Mary achieves the right balance to help caregivers and loved ones deal with their newfound reality.”  – Francine Barr, DNP, RN, NEA-BC, CEO of St. Mary’s Hospital, Bon Secours Health System

“As only a Southern storyteller could do, McMullin masterfully combines the heartbreak of Alzheimer’s disease with laugh-out-loud entertainment and practical insights. Missing Mary is a must-read for caregivers.”Tom Edwards, designer for Spotify

“Missing Mary is a must-read for everyone. It should not be limited to only medical and nursing professionals.” – Ken White, PhD, Associate Dean of University of Virginia School of Nursing
