Iris Joy Cantrell Gregg
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Jun. 2, 1951
Death: Jan. 29, 2006

Iris Joy and Bobby Roy Cantrell were attached at the hip/buttocks area. Doctors thought Bobby had a better chance of survival because he was the larger and stronger of the two so when they separated them, they cut into Iris' hip. However, he passed away and that scar was a reminder of the sacrifice he gave for her.
