As the nation pauses to give thanks, we 1
asked a few of our readers to share their
Thanksgiving memories with us.
“In September of 1972, my 16-year-old son Mike
had surgery for a malignant brain tumor. The
doctors gave him a 50-50 chance of surviving. He
came through the surgery and then had six weeks of
radiation treatment. By Thanksgiving, be was recov-
ering. The entire family was more than touched that
year at Thanksgiving -- we were so thankful. Mike
is perfectly healthy and is now a sergeant with the
Arlington Police Department. Not a year goes by
that we don’t remember that Thanksgiving and give
“We lived in Fort Worth but we would always
come to the Highland community for the big
Thanksgiving Day Fellowship at Highland Mission-
ary Baptist Church. Back then, they would have five
or six speakers, special music and lots of country
cooking. They would make tables for all the food by
putting two pews together out in the parking lot.
Locke still participates in those Thanksgiving Day
Fellowships. “I've been pastor here for 17 years and
we still have the fellowships. We only have one
speaker now, but we still have the special music and

“My grandfather came to spend the month of
November of last year with my family. We had a lot
of fun, but we didn’t realize at the time how
important it was. He passed away in January. So
that November was the last time I saw him. I'U
always be thankful that we got to be together that
one last time.”
“One of the reasons that I love Thanksgiving is
because it’s hard to commercialize it. It’s the ooly
time, except for a
time of crisis, when
the nation has its
eyes lifted upward.
I also love it be-
cause it represents
Thanksgiving has been important to me and
everyone gets better than the last one. Especially
at my children grow.” (Fritscher is pastor of
Cottonwood Baptist Church)
Gerhart says the two Thanksgivings that stand
out in his memory were two of the wont.
“I spent the Thanksgiving of 1944 in a foxhole
in the Philippines. Then, the Thanksgiving of
1945, I was in the hospital here in the states,
recovering from injuries that I suffered in
Okinawa. I sure did want to be home. I was
married and had a little daughter that I wanted
to see so bad.
That was a Thanksgiving that I’ll never forget.
But I went on to have many happy Thanksgiv-
ings with my family.”
Billye Thiebaud Young
Thanksgiving of 1957 - a year that her life -
and her way of looking at life - was changed
”1 was always a worrier. I was a young
housewife who worried about everything. That
year, I was particularly worried about our peanut
crop. But shortly before Thanksgiving, my ooly
brother. Jimmy Smallwood, was killed in a
car/train accident. I had no sisters and my only
brother was dead. I’m not sure exactly what
happened. I don’t know if I just grew up or what
but I changed. My priorities changed. I stopped
worrying about the little things. I realized what
