Remembering Maddie Spohr

Madeline Alice Spohr was born 11 weeks premature on November 11th, 2009 to Heather and Mike Spohr of The Spohrs Are Multiplying and The Newborn Identity respectively.  Although Maddie had health issues associated with prematurity, she was doing quite well until an infection took her life on April 7th, 2009. The funeral for 17-month old Maddie Spohr was held today in California, where guests were encouraged to wear purple. Online bloggers have been mourning Maddie’s loss worldwide. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you contribute to the March of Dimes in memory of Madeline. You can read more about Maddie at Rest in Peace Little Girl.
