Norma Sauer has no short-term memory, doesn't know her address or phone number and constantly asks the whereabouts of her mother, father and siblings, who are all deceased.   She paces throughout the house, often is easily distracted and can change from an angel to a devil in a heartbeat.   There are daily challenges, safety issues and emotional upheaval. But there also is a lot of patience and love.   For the past five years, the 96-year-old Hagerstown woman has lived in a world that she often doesn't recognize.
