If I am ever inflicted with this disease there is a good chance that I will go around singing or whistling to the tune of “Delta Dawn what’s that flower you have on?” “Could it be a faded rose from days gone by?” The reason I would do this is because this song holds very strong childhood memories for me. My dad and I were always trying to sing or whistle this song. Please keep in mind that the person you are taking care of is living in their “Days Gone By.”
