    Summary: 
    This is one daughter's story of Lois and Ralph Pearson, whose love of life and each other transcended the darkest moments of war, separation, heartache, and family tragedy to achieve a memorable state of grace spanning six decades of marriage. Paddock recalls her parents' early lives together on St. Paul's East Side, including their playful courtship on the city's ice rinks, as well as her own fond recollections of growing up in the post-war glow of the 1950s and '60s. Reflecting in part on the nature of memory, her book examines the confounding mysteries surrounding Alzheimer's as manifested in Lois and Ralph's experience, while remembering some of the stories that marked one family's journey through life.
