The State : Couple's Gift: Quadruplets

December 25, 1987

John and Denise Cross of Vacaville will remember this Christmas Eve as their family doubled in size from four to eight members. Denise Cross gave birth to healthy quadruplets--three boys and a girl--at the David Grant Medical Center at Travis Air Force Base. The children, named David, Daniel, Robert and Marinda, ranged in weight from Marinda's 3 pounds, 14 ounces, to David's 5 pounds, 3 ounces. They will join an older brother and sister at home. Gaylyne Shoemaker, a friend of the family who witnessed the Caesarean section births, said all four babies "were kicking and screaming."
