With Mother’s Day May 12, we celebrate family and special relationships between generations of moms.
Busy. It’s the word Donna Remer, 63, uses to describe her life as she navigates among four generations including caring for her elderly parents and spending time with grandchildren.
Donna’s parents, Hershel and Polly Underwood, gave up their retirement home in Kentucky to move back to Michigan and now reside in a senior residence in New Baltimore. Hershel, 93, developed dementia eight years ago and sadly he doesn’t know his family most days. It makes having them closer all the better for Donna, who says she has learned a lot and has a better idea of who she is and where she came from because of time spent with her parents.
