Clinton Avenue Memoirs (#5.16)
14 February 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Sophia starts losing her memories from the time with her husband and it worries her. To her it is the same as losing herself. In order to do something against it her and Dorothy travel all the way to their old home and go inside to bring the memories back. And Salvadore is also visiting her from heaven.

A sweet and heartwarming episode about one of the most devastating problems one can get with age: losing the memories. And they deal with it greatly and give us a positive ending.

The Puerto Rican who lives in their old apartment was a fun character. "Don't take anything" and "Puerto Ricans can ice skate" were bot great lines
