Product Notes

In June 2004 my mother Kathleen lost her battle with alzhiemers disease at Conestoga View, a nursing facility in Lancaster Pennsylvania. I spent several hours almost every day at her bedside for weeks before her death.Two years prior her oldest brother, Richard, met the same fate at a veterans hospital in Maryland. Many years before that their Father, my Grandfather, died of heart failure. He too had altzhiemers at the time of his passing. For the past fifteen years I've received treatment for both anxiety and depression. About three years ago I was diagnosed with attention deficit and bipolar disorders because of which I'm currently and probably permanently disabled. No sign of alziemers___yet, thankfully! I recently learned that there are about four million people in the United States with dementia/altziemers. This could mean that if each patient has three or four immediate family members there are twelve to sixteen million suffering souls affected directly or indirectly by this disease. Not to mention close friends and neighbors. It was about three months after my mother's death, words to what became a song began flooding into my mind. I couldn't stop this deluge. It resulted in Conestoga View. At first I wrote it as a memorial to Mom. I gave some copies to some of my relatives and some said I should 'do something with it'.By sheer accident, or was it by Providence that I found out about CDBABY.COM .The rest is unfolding history. It is my desire that those witnessing their loved ones slowly drift into oblivion as they gradually lose their mental faculties can indentify with and maybe derive some peace and comfort from realizing they are not alone. This is the essence of Conestoga View. Thank you for listening. Written, produced, arranged and performed by Larry Carlton. 2005.
