Jennifer Small, 51, left, and Tracy Broshar, 55, right, enjoy watching a soap opera on TV after eating brunch with Lucy, one of their dogs, snuggled between them on Thursday February 20, 2014 in East Sacramento, Calif. Jennifer was diagnosed with dementia at the end of 2012. She and her long-time partner Tracy got married in 2013. Tracy’s says they married after the Alzheimer's diagnosis because she didn't want Jen to have any doubt that she was going to take care of her.
