Jennifer (Olivia 12)- I think JHD is the most cruel, ugliest form of HD, really any disease. Any person with this form is immediately one of my heros. A person with JHD is always positive regardless of what the are going through.

This is so beautiful. She enjoyed and did so much in her short life here on earth. She gave all our family so many joys and smiles. She is always in my heart and my thoughts. Love you Livie, “Big O” now and forever, Aunt Debba
My beautiful niece, I miss your smile, your giggle, the way you lit up like a Christmas tree when you saw our Kenny! I mourn our loss. I mourn the fact that you never got a chance to grow up, that they didn’t find a cure or better treatment for this horrible disease! But I thank God that we had you for the twelve years that we did! I pray for your soul and for all the souls of the victims of this disease. I pray too for those suffering from HD/JHD and for their families and caregivers. I also pray for a cure so that no one will suffer this debilitating disease any longer. Olivia, I hope you are being held in nanny’s arms and flying with the angels “Somewhere over the Rainbow”! Love, Uncle Jon
