Our precious son, Neil Douglas Ragsdale, was born and died March 22, 2017. He was diagnosed with Trisomy 18 early in pregnancy, and we loved him every moment of his life, even though we knew our time with him would be short. He was held and cherished by his parents, Molly Murphy and Mick Ragsdale; his siblings, Daniel, Nolan and Eleanor Ragsdale; his maternal grandmother, Vicki Murphy; and our parish priest, the Rev. Ross Tozzi; all of Fairbanks. He is greeted in heaven by his maternal grandfather, Daniel Murphy, of Denver, Colorado; and his paternal grandparents, Nolan and Marie Ragsdale, of Douglas, Georgia. We thank Dr. Hogenson, Dale Hardy and the staff of Chena ObGyn, Dr. Bartling, of Fairbanks Memorial Hospital Hospice; Dr. Nace, of Tanana Valley Clinic Pediatrics; Dr. Richey and Audrey Burke, of Alaska Perinatology Associates; and the labor and delivery nursing staff at Fairbanks Memorial Hospital for their kind care during Neil's life, birth and death. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the Greater Fairbanks Community Hospital Foundation, P.O. Box 71396, Fairbanks, AK 99707. Funds will go toward the purchase of a Cuddle Cot for the hospital. For more information: http://bit.ly/2pEpe8y. Funeral services will be held June 17 at Sacred Heart Cathedral in Fairbanks.
