We have a granddaughter and a set of twins that are great grandchildren that have been afflicted with this. Our Granddaughter, has a very special attachment to her Maternal Grandfather, and has since she was a toddler, even before she was diagnosed. She graduated from high School with a 3.7 Grade average, and teaches a class of small children in Primary. We feel blessed that this special little spirit is part of our family.
