The Dignity Memorial(R) Network Honors Four Individuals Who Gave the Gift of Life Through Organ and Tissue Donation
Date:12/7/2009

HOUSTON Dec. 7 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Dr. Victor Miranda spent his life caring for others -- as an emergency room physician and medical entrepreneur in Houston, as a father and as a friend. On December 11, 2008, at the age of 52, Victor suffered cardiac arrest as a result of an undetected congenital heart defect. Even in death, he was able to save lives as an organ and tissue donor. Dr. Miranda is just one of four individuals being honored by the Dignity Memorial® network of funeral, cremation and cemetery service providers for giving the greatest gift of all...the gift of life. In addition to Dr. Miranda, Mary Kathleen "Kathy" Morris of Raleigh, N.C., Robert Schuppert of Denver and Virginia Camacho of San Diego will be memorialized with floragraphs -- portraits made of floral and natural materials -- to be decorated by family and friends in December and featured on the Donate Life float entry in the 121st Rose Parade on Jan. 1, 2010 in Pasadena, Calif.

"It is a privilege for us to be able to honor these four individuals who meant so much to their family and friends and who were able to significantly impact the lives of those with the greatest need," said Phil Jacobs, spokesperson for the Dignity Memorial provider network. "Working in the funeral industry, we believe in the importance of celebrating and honoring life and this is a wonderful opportunity to pay tribute to Victor, Kathy, Robert and Virginia and the gift of life they gave to others."

Kathy Morris, 56, was a devoted wife, mother and grandmother who put family first and knew no sacrifice was too great when it came to their well-being. She believed in organ donation and with the assistance of the North Carolina Eye Bank and Carolina Donor Services, she was able to give sight and life to those in desperate need.

Robert Schuppert, 24, lived life to the fullest. He worked and played hard, he experienced true love, and he knew he was loved. Rob dona
