SA's Memorial Services since '97
Zoe Rose Memorial Service - Alpharetta, GA - Some years... Richard and Keira Sorrells had 25 week preemie triples in 2006. You can read their touching story at this site. Their three miracle daugthers all came home. Zoe Rose had many health issues. Keira writes, "Zoe was born an angel on Earth and will remain as such forevermore." While the Sorrell's focus is on preemies, especially multiples, and their family needs and issues, they also have created a memorial service for October Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month in memory of their daughter, Zoe Rose. Children of all ages are invited to their memorial service.
