We have always known that Brad Paisley and Kimberly Williams-Paisley have a strong marriage. But chances are they didn’t even realize how strong that marriage was until it was tested.

And that test began the very first day they became man and wife.

In the new book “Where the Light Gets In: Losing My Mother Only To Find Her Again,” Kimberly opens up about her mother’s battle with dementia and how she has come to rely on the love of family, friends and Brad to see her through.

“(Brad) has been amazing,” Kimberly says in the April 11 issue of People Magazine. “More than anything, he keeps me laughing.”

Come to find out, Kimberly noticed the beginnings of her mom’s dementia struggle back in 2003, on the day her and Brad were married. “There was this really long pause in the middle of her reading,” Kimberly tells the magazine. “She just wasn’t thinking clearly.”

Just two years later, her mother would be diagnosed, and life for Kimberly and Brad would change forever.

In an excerpt from the book, the article goes on to say that over 10 years since her diagnosis, Kimberly’s mom now resides at a long-term care facility, sitting in a wheelchair with a vacant look on her face.

Stay strong Kimberly.

Your mom would want it that way.
