Trivia:

In 1983, Deford published a memoir that chronicled his daughter's short life. The book was adapted into a TV film of the same name, Alex: The Life of a Child (1986), which starred Craig T. Nelson as Deford and Bonnie Bedelia as his wife, Carol. Deford updated his memoir in 1998 to include an epilogue on how his family and Alex's childhood friends progressed following her death.
