    It was an honor to have met you and sweet baby Wells. I will hold you all in my thoughts. Please know that while his time was short, he made a big impact on a lot of people. I can’t imagine what you are going through but I wanted you to know that your MUSC family is always here for you.

  9. Tanya Malphrus says:

    Thinking of you all and your beautiful baby boy. God gained has gained a precious angel.
    So go and run free with the angels
    Dance around the golden clouds
    For the lord has chosen you to be with him
    And we should feel nothing but proud
    Although he has taken you from us
    And our pain a lifetime will last
    Your memory will never escape us
    But make us glad for the time we did have
    Your face will always be hidden
    Deep inside our hearts
    Each precious moment you gave us
    Shall never, ever depart
    So go and run free with the angels
    As they sing so tenderly.
