Grandpa - Impressions and Expressions of Ijon
My grandmother died from Alzheimers, her condition worsened in the same way you describe. The most heartbreaking part was when she would have a momentarily lapse of recognition--some memory sparked that she couldn't remember the words to communicate--but the fleeting joy in her expression was apparent. I think that the happiest memories persevere the longest.
