Norman, OK Author Publishes Book on Dementia
February 08, 2017 (PRLEAP.COM) Entertainment NewsFebruary 8, 2017 - Fallen Leaves, a new book by Melba Williams Fisher, has been released by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc.
Fallen Leaves was written to inform the reader about Lewy Body Disease. It will take you through the land of no return. Lewy Bodies are small crystals in the brain. You must have a magnifying lens to find them. They can live about seven years from the time it starts until death.
Melba Williams Fisher wrote Fallen Leaves from the notes she took while her husband was tragically experiencing these diseases. She wants to inform readers about Lewy Body Disease since there isn't much known about it. Melba's husband's leaf weathered many strong storms. It amazed the doctors. Then one big storm came, and his leaf fell. The wind blew it toward heaven. We are all leaves from God's Tree of Life. Some leaves hang on longer while others curl up and fall off.
About the Author:
Melba Williams Fisher attended Central State University in Edmond, Oklahoma. She wanted to be a teacher since some of her family members were teachers.
While teaching her first year, her future husband, Ralph, came home on a furlough from the Army and they were married. She finished teaching the school term and went to California. After Ralph was discharged, they moved to Amarillo, Texas. Later they were blessed with a baby girl, Sharri, and many years later a wonderful son-in-law, Michael Jonas.
While in Amarillo, Melba worked for ten years as Employment Manager for St. Anthony Hospital. At this time, a nice garage building and house were for sale in Sparks, Oklahoma. Ralph opened Fisher's Garage, and Melba took care of the books for the town. Melba also had a ceramic shop and taught ceramic classes. Also, she substituted for thirteen years in the Sparks Public Schools.
Destiny entered into their lives, taking them into a land of no return-a land of Alzheimer's and Lewy Body Disease.
