The family is deeply thankful to the incredibly caring staff of Plano Presbyterian Hospital including Allison D’penhasouza, Nancy Rodriguez, Andrea Gust, Heidi Schermerhorn, Carrie Rapp and Minda Stratton, and to Dr. Michele Pepperell of Frisco Obstetrics and Gynecology, and for the outpouring of love and support from dear family and friends during this extremely difficult time.
