What a great heartwarming story!! I've always loved people with Downs!! They are so friendly and they believe in life!
Makes me thing about my friends' soccer-buddy Mo, who died last night

I loved this story too. You just know this honor will mean so much to
this girl.:) I read where she wore her crown to bed that night.


Lut, I am so sorry about your friend's buddy Mo. :( I think sometimes
the good & the innocent, die younger because they don't have anything
to atone for in this life.

Downs Syndrome people have a much shorter average lifespan than others, only into their fifties, and many don't make it that long because of other complications that Downs can bring to a person. But the time they are with us can be a joyful one.
