She was determined to see her husband again

Mary Daniel just took a part-time job on the cleaning crew at an assisted-living facility. Its not that she needed the money, but it was the only way she could see her husband Steve Daniel, 66, who has early-onset Alzheimer's disease and is a resident at RoseCastle at Deerwood in Jacksonville, Florida. She works two days a week, scrubbing dishes, mopping floors and cleaning the grill. Afterward she spends several hours with her husband.

After not seeing her husband for more than three months, being with him again has been "just amazing," she said through tears. "It didn't matter what I had to do to get there," she added. "I was willing to do whatever it took to fulfill my promise that I was going to be there for him every step of the way"
