Leah Grant, 65 Tanymynydd, Bangor, states that no sooner does he finish his food than he protests he has had none and wants more - that he dies not sleep - that he is incoherent in speech and laughing without cause - that he said his deceased wife had come to the room to fetch him to heaven and that he pretends to be asleep, lying stiff and refusing to be awakened.
