This is my dad Ted and my daughter Georgie. When things were on the downward spiral with dad, and we could not get him to move or even speak, she would come along and it was as if the Alzheimer's melted away for a moment. He called her "his happy" and it made me feel so good that I was a part in giving this "gift" to him. I never kept my kids from him. My babies were such a source of joy for him even at his worst. I wanted so desperately to make sure they'd have at the very least, a sensory memory of him. I think they do.
Love you still dad!
