“It’s a wonderful life! I get up in the morning, go to sleep at night, and in between eat three meals.”

Ken Morganstern, Priya Morganstern, and Bhavani Jaroff

Five years after Ken Morganstern was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, he sat down with his daughters, Priya Morganstern and Bhavani Jaroff, to talk about the memories he had left.

Ken needed some prompting from time to time, but family stayed strong in his memory. He still found pleasure in the simple things in his life, and took comfort in knowing that he leaves behind a legacy of love with his children.

This all-new animated short is presented as part of the new StoryCorps animation season, Father Figures, where father figures and their children share the strength and wisdom that they draw from each other.

Listen to Ken, Priya, and Bhavani’s original StoryCorps interview.
