"I'm most thankful for being alive. I'm 70 years old; I've been here a long time, and to be here without being sick or diseased, just makes me feel good."
Beverly Bystryk, Cheektowaga
"We have a lot to be grateful for in the United States, we have all our freedom. We live so close to an international country, Canada, which we are friends with, and I'm thankful for that, too. I'm really grateful for being an American."
Joann Brown, Buffalo
"I'm grateful to see another Thanksgiving, and I really hope that everybody who's not going to have a Thanksgiving, that they can be happy and be able to really enjoy their lives. I could be even more thankful if some of these soldiers were coming home. I pray for them every day."
Fred Thur, Kenmore
"We just had our first baby granddaughter born to us a month ago, so it's going to be a very special holiday season for us. She's named Gianna Lynn Thur."
