Family honors lost baby with Putting For Preemies

Posted: Updated:

A local family honored the memory of their son, who they lost only three weeks ago, following his premature birth in May, with a golf outing to raise money to others.

Mom Jessica Coombs said, "It's bittersweet absolutely. We're glad that we have all the support from all of our friends, family and strangers. It's overwhelming to see how many strangers are out here."

A portion of the money raised will go to help the Coombs family with expenses and the rest toward Ronald McDonald house.  The Coombs were out of town on vacation  in South Carolina when Jessica Coombs went into premature labor.

Their son, Marcus survived for two weeks.
