In an uplifting story in the New York Times, Robert Leleux recounts his grandmother's diagnosis with Alzheimer's disease and the lessons she taught by forgetting. "So often, I hear people say they’d rather die than get Alzheimer’s. This is, in part, because they believe the disease will force them to abandon themselves to oblivion. But my grandmother showed me that we are more than the sum of our memories. She taught me the vital importance of forgetting; and that sometimes it’s only our commitment to remembering that prevents us from accepting the love and peace that surrounds us," writes Leleux.
