How far back can they remember?
The few years before my dad passed, his memories of anything concerning his childhood were completely lost. My mom, who lived to 94, could recall most everything in her life, including the events that had shaped the lives of her 5 kids.
When my Barbara developed dementia, most of her early years seemed to fade away, for which I was grateful, as the first 1/3 of her life had never been a pleasant experience. By the end of her life, all she could remember was that she loved me. What a blessing that was !
