Not yet rated | write a review
Kate has always adored her grandpa''s storytelling - but lately he''s been repeating the same stories again and again. One day, he even forgets Kate''s name. Her mother''s patient explanations open Kate''s eyes to what so many of the elderly must confront: Alzheimer''s disease and other forms of memory loss. Determined to support her grandfather, Kate explores ways to help him - and herself - cope by creating a photo album of their times together, memories that will remain in their hearts forever.
