however her legacy was, you got to respect her for being the tough leader she was during Britain's most hard times. wish our leaders these days fought for the common good rather than lip service.

She was wonderful. We lost two great people that day who were both influential in their ways. The other was Annette Funicello.

I didn't think she was a great person like others here, but signed anyway, it's a terrible thing to get.

She was called The Iron Lady for a reason.....she was strong and stood up for her beliefs. I wasn't particularly a fan of hers but she did her job and did it well. Alzheimers is a terrible disease and one I hope never to get. Blessings to her family.

The problem with workd leaders getting dementia is that long after the leader is no longer active, we are still paying with our lives for their dementia.

Though I didn't agree with everything she did, I respected her. It's a terrible disease I wouldn't wish on anyone.

It just proves that Dementia or Alzheimer's does not differentiate between people in the public eye or private citizens.

My Mom was one of the private citizens!!
