Thanksgiving is all about food, family and spending some quality time with loved ones. Whether you're thankful for all the fortune in your life or happy to put 2017 behind you and start a new year fresh, Thanksgiving is an important time for reflection.
Many of us will sit back to think about those who will not be joining us at Thanksgiving dinner, making for a bittersweet event.
Carson Daly's mother passed away in September at her home in Palm Desert, California after suffering from a heart attack.
"There are no words for the loss of mom. Thank u for the incredible outpouring of love. It helps. Please hug the ones you love most tonight," he tweeted.

Daly's collegues from Today announced her passing in a statement just a day after The Voice won the 2017 Emmy for outstanding reality competition.
Matt Lauer read a statement from Daly, saying, “It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our mother, wife, grandmother, Pattie Daly Caruso.”
“She passed away peacefully on Sunday, Sept. 17. Kiki, as she was known to her grandchildren and many others, touched so many lives with her kindness, her giant spirit and her love of life. She’ll be terribly missed by her family and the world, but her spark will shine for eternity.”
Just five weeks after his mom passed away, Daly's stepfather, Richard Caruso, also died after battling bone cancer.
While his mother may be gone, she has not been forgotten this Thanksgiving.
The Voice and Today Show host shared a glimpse into his Thanksgiving meal that he was cooking in memory of his late mom and we can't help but get emotional.
