My Favorite Thanksgiving Memory: Sara Forte

Thanksgiving is almost here! We’ve partnered with our sister sites The Recipe Club, Read It Forward, CrafterNews and Crown to ask authors: What’s your favorite Thanksgiving memory? Here’s one from Sara Forte, author of The Sprouted Kitchen

My grandfather, my mother’s father, had Alzheimer’s. He passed away a couple of years ago, but I can remember a good six to 10 years of us all watching his brain and memory fail him. It was tough to watch, but at times, offered comic relief. I can remember one holiday, all of us at a table, and my grandfather chiming in to the conversation. He got names incorrect, was completely off topic and made no sense, but we all just played along with it. Though he couldn’t track the conversation at the table while we ate a great meal, we all decided to join in on his brain and just be nonsensical as well. We didn’t discuss it, but the family was all behind him, loving him in that way. It was special to watch and to think of in retrospect.
