Michelle For me I feel it is too remote. I can't see how you can identify with a cell if that is the case would you feel a spiritial connection if you found a hairbrush filled with their hair?

I'm not religious whatsoever but if I was uneducated and didn't grow up knowing my mother with no one allowed to speak of her, maybe I would feel some kind of connection to anything that was hers. I mean I loved Deborah...she was so full of love for her mother...I teared up when she was handed a vial of her mother's cells by Christoph and she touched it to her lips and said, "You're famous, just nobody knows it"...Sometimes when I would skim pass the mumbo jumbo of the science it was refreshing to listen to Deborah, a woman so loving of her family

I did like Deborah too and I was sad to see that she died before the book was finished.

Hilly | 14 comments I know it was sad, but she seemed to die peacefully and I was happy to hear about her brother "Z" finally seeing the light and the outcomes of the other younger Lackes.

Devlynn Allen | 8 comments Hard to say, because I am not in their situation, and cannot be empathetic. I am not so sure I would feel a spiritual feeling, but maybe a connection somehow.. I would be too confused to probably feel anything.. lol..The beauty of the cells is what where my love would come from... I was thinking about this when I was reading, and still could not imagine how I would feel!
