Emilee and Kenny Rogers
Parents in mourning


Kenny and Emilee have been married a year as of 1/2/04. That is also the date that their 14 day old daughter died of a rare syndrome called Zellweger Syndrome. There was no expecting this or no sign that there would be anything wrong with the baby.

My husband and I lost our 14 day old daughter,McKenlee Peyton Gratz Rogers, on 1/2/04, our one year anniversary. We had no idea that anything was wrong with baby. I had a completely normal uncomplicated pregnancy. She died of a rare syndrome called Zellweger Syndrome affecting one in 100,000 babies. We are now having a hard time undersanding why God chose us. We aren't sure what we are to do. We need the prayers to help give us peace and to quit questioning God because we know that it is wrong in doing so. Also my husband is in the military and will be going back over seas to serve in "Operation Enduring Freedom" in one month, I need prayers for strength while he is gone and he needs them for a safe return.

Dear God, I pray for Kenny and Emilee and I pray that they can find hope, love, strength, and peace of mind through you. I pray that they never lose sight of your love and that they know you are taking care of all of us. I pray for Kenny and for his safety when he goes overseas and I pray for a safe return home for him. I pray that they can find the strength through you to get through their daughters passing and know that you are taking care of her. Thank you dear God, Amen.

Heavenly Father,
I pray that the Holy Spirit fill Emilee and Kenny's lives with the peace and comfort that they need at this time. That they allow themselves to feel your everloving presence in their lives right now. I pray that they feel comfort to get through the day, peace to get throught the night and strength to get through the days to come. I pray that the love that brought them together and brougth forth their baby will not be torn apart by grief. Give them the strength to put away their questions of "why?" and have faith that their baby is safe in Your embrace. And I pray that they keep this verse in mind, John 16:22 Now is your time of grief, but I will see you again and you will rejoice, and no one will take away your joy. In Jesus' name I pray. AMEN!

My thoughts and especially my prayers are with you both. God works in mysterious ways and we don't always know why. That is why people have faith. I can sense that you and your husband are strong and will get through this terrible tragedy. I will keep you both in my prayers and believe me when I say that He will give you strength when you need it. God Bless You Both.

Dear Lord go today and comfort Emilee,and Kenny. Lord they are at a great need for you at this time. You never do anything wrong,and let them know that. Emilee,and Kenny the Lord let us go through things so that we can help someone else. A preacher said this one time,and I didn't understand until I had to face a loss,then it became,clear afterwards. Someone else was having the same problem I had and I was there to help them,because I understood. So,Lord I ask you to give them strength,and a peace of mind at this time,especially Emilee,since her husband will be leaving. Lord put your loving protection around him,so that he will have a safe return to his famil. I ask this in Jesus Name,Amen.

My Lord Jesus Christ, help this family thru their loss; but let them find peace in their hearts just letting them know that their baby is with you, our God, you mother; Mary our Queen, and all the angels and saints. Let them know that their child is in no pain, and I believe with all my heart that if "you bring it to us, you my Lord will see us thru it". Many Blessing to you both and that our God will keep your husband safe until he is able to return home and keep you strong thru this tribulation. Amen

EMILEE & KENNY, I KNOW IT IS NOT HARD TO QUESTION GOD, GOD GAVE YOU YOUR DAUGHTER FOR A SHORT TIME, IT IS HARD FOR YOU TO ADJUST, DO NOT BLAME EITHER OF YOU BLAME ONLY HURTS. PRAY FOR THE WILLINGNESS TO ACCEPT THIS SITUATION FOR WHAT IT IS, NOT FOR WHAT IT WAS NOT.
WE DO NOT HAVE THE ANSWERS TO WHAT HAPPENED, ONLY GOD DOES. WHEN AND IF YOU ARE SUPPOSED TO KNOW, MORE WILL BE REVEALED IN GOD'S TIME NOT YOURS. I AS WELL PRAY FOR THE WILLINGNESS FOR YOUR ACCEPTANCE ON YOUR SITUATION, AND NOT TO BLAME OTHERS FOR WHAT IS OUT OF OUR CONTROL. GOD BE WITH YOU. AFG1986

Emilee and Kenny, my heart goes out to you in your profound loss, the pain and grief must be overwhelming right now. Please know that questioning God, and asking "Why" are very normal feelings in the beginning when you've lost a precious child, God in His greal love and mercy understands this. I also lost a child, a son 4 yrs. ago at the age of 24. I can tell you that it will get better, in time. If you click on my Profile, you'll see a link to the Support/Prayer Circle I started for grieving Parents, we'd love to have you there, for the support you need. My prayers are also with your husband, may his Angels surround him until he safely comes back home to you. May He wrap you both in His loving arms and give you His peace, which surpasses all others.

Dear Kenny and Emilee,

my heart goes out to you, and to all of us in this column of prayers. I hope you can see and use it as a tool to get through these early days, with the knowing that strangers can care and pray and hope with you for better times.

The loss of your daughter is a terrible nightmare for you. I hope you will mention her given name sometime, as I believe there is another life for us; that when my son died 2 years ago he was transformed into a John Reineking with even more life, in heaven. Oh, how we miss him...

Hang in there, see what God can do with you in your sorrow. Some things are gone, but God can make all things new and He will not leave you without a way to honor your daughter, because He loved her too.

He loves the family you are becoming, and I know He is with you every moment in this new grief.

Like every one else, our prayers are with you for strength and rememberance that God does love you. Remember this column of prayers in those hard times that will come as you wish things were different. We do too!

Perhaps Zellweger syndrome will soon be treatable or preventable. Perhaps your love for your daughter will soon be a blessing to the world in another way, if God can work in this time to help you through the harshness, a mild description, of the pain of losing the child you were looking forward to holding and nurturing.

Keep your thoughts on God and his love and stay close to positive friends who will hug you when you can be hugged. Keep your arms open for new love, though they feel so heavy in the loss.

Some groups encourage moms who have lost children to have pillows on hand to squeeze with those arms. It has been helpful to me.

God, please be with Emilee and Kenny as they go through this hard time. Please let them find the inner peace they need so much. AMEN. ( With time the pain gets better. We may never know why these things happen, some things arn't ment to know. Just hold strong to each other and I hope with time you will heal.)

Dear God;

I pray for this loving family that is going through test and trials in their lives right now. I ask God to wrap your arms around them and help heal the pain and suffering. God, I also pray for Kenny safety overseas and return home. Only through you this can be done.
In Jesus Name, Amen
