Autumn Memory

Commentator Marion Roach says the fall season reminds her of her brilliant mother, who was a teacher. Roach's mother began suffering from Altzheimer's Disease at age 51, and church became the only place she stayed calm. She once started singing all the words of the hymns, despite not knowing much else.
