Wellesley’s Renee Gold has launched a blog called “Ageless with Aunty” (How to live well, have fun, and remain ageless in any economy…) that focuses on her adventures with great aunt Helen (along with cameos from the likes of actor Will Ferrell). This blog blows ours away on the touchy-feely front. Gold describes herself as a writer with an upbeat memoir in the works who is seeking an agent. She figures that blogging will help get at least part of her story out, which includes showing that living with Alzheimer’s (as her aunt does) doesn’t mean you can’t keep enjoying life. Gold also uses the blog to share secrets for staying ageless, as she says she and her aunt do.

Thank you to the Great Swellesley Report! Aunty is in heaven now and i still occasionally keep up the blog. I guess all these years later, i am just seeing this great post now…in May of 2022! How did i ever miss it.
If anyone should ever stumble upon it, Aunty didnt have Alzheimer’s’ at all. But she did have a touch of memory loss and didn’t like to be alone. We were a great pair. And she remains the best part of who i am!
She lives on in GREAT Spirit and was the epitome of selfless humility!
