    Sad to say my brother passed away in his sleep Wednesday at 69 so my wife and mother in law had a meal in his remembrance. I was going to pick him up for Thanksgiving Day so the day was bitter sweet. But I never lose sight of all that to be Thankful for.

    I'm so sorry for your loss! The blessing is going in your sleep in my view. That's how I'd like to pass on when my time comes. RIP..I lost my baby brother a few years ago and he passed away while pulling out of a parking space, drove his truck right into the pharmacy he'd just come out of. Glad I had 10 days with him not long before he passed. Glad he didn't hurt anyone with his truck after his heart stopped other than a large window.

    So sorry to hear about your brother's passing.

    If you are up to it, would you share your favorite story about your brother?

    Everything I could possibly do in advance. Turkey in pan. Dressing and casserole assembled and ready to go into oven. Desserts made. Cranberries made. Both gravies need just to be heated. Same with sweet potatoes. Green beans washed and trimmed. Salad greens bagged and ready. Rolls and muffins thawing. Serving dishes washed. Wine and cider chilling. Beets ready. Cooking green beans and mashed potatoes only last minute tasks.

    With three people dropping out at the last minute, I had eight total, three of whom do not eat meat. And I ordered a 15 pound turkey expecting three more carnivores! Turkey came out very good. It is all divided, wrapped and frozen. Already made and froze turkey casserole, the kind that layers stuffing, turkey, gravy, green beans, mashed potatoes and popped in oven. Portions allotted for turkey carcass soup, turkey pie, turkey pesto pasta, turkey quesadillas, and turkey pho. I might/ finish the turkey by Passover. Also few leftover rolls and muffins in freezer, small containers of cranberry sauce and three slices chocolate pecan pie.

    Gave Lashanna her turkey after the primates left. Too much commotion for her with everyone here. She enjoyed the turkey. And in the morning stole my glasses!
