Baby Susan Anne Catherine Torres
August 2, 2005 - September 11, 2005

With all the sadness in our nation recently, this one adds another tear to the ocean. I just received this via an emailing:

Late last night, five-week-old Susan Anne Catherine Torres passed away
from heart failure at Children's National Medical Center in
Washington, D.C., following emergency surgery to repair a perforated
intestine. The surgery was attempted after a sudden deterioration in
her condition over the weekend.

After the efforts of this summer to bring her into the world, this is
obviously a devastating loss for the Torres and Rollin families. We
wish to thank all of you who have sustained us in prayer over the past
17 weeks. It was our fondest wish that we could have been able to
share Susan's homecoming with all of you.

The family will be making no further statements at this time. All media
inquiries can be directed to Children's National Medical Center.

For more information, or to donate to the family, please visit this site.
