A mother's voice is the first thing we hear from the time we exit the womb. And its the voice we continue to hear throughout our lives. We model our mother's voice when we first learn to talk.

It's because this voice commands such power, that it's even more devastating when Alzheimer's disease quiets it. Or silences it completely.
