  1. My husband and I met Deanna and Dennis after we lost out baby to Trisomy 18. They had lost their son shortly before we both joined a Grief Group for parents who lost infants.
    I often wondered what happened to them. We kept in touch for awhile. So sorry for your family’s loss. Can’t believe both of them are gone. That was such a hard time for them and for us! It’s been 40+ years now!
    Praying that God will comfort her children.
