Although Harper never spent any time with us on earth, she was tremendously loved by all and touched so many lives. Our beautiful, little angel will remain forever in our hearts and will be deeply missed. The family would like to thank the staff of the Family Maternity Suites at Memorial Medical Center for the incredible care, compassion, support and love provided to Harper and the entire family during this very difficult time. We will be forever grateful.
A private memorial service will be held on Saturday, July 21, 2018.
