Rogers Family Memorial

Thank you and all the best in the New Year
December 29, 2016
September 23rd, 2016 should have been a day like any other for my sister, Kyle Rogers, and her family. Work, college courses, football games, school drop off, family dinner, carefree play and preparing for the busy weekend. But all that came to a halt at 5am that morning when she found her beloved husband and father of her four beautiful children, John (44 years of age), unresponsive as he prepared for work. Tragically there was nothing that could be done to revive him and we all lost a wonderful man before the sun had even risen.
After 20 years of marriage, four beautiful children and what seemed - at the time - like a lifetime of memories Kyle and her children are left to find their way through this unimaginable amount of grief and loss. Kyle is also left to, on her own without the primary breadwinner, manage the finances of a family with greater medical need than most. Noah, 15 is Autistic and requires medical intervention as well as additional behavioral and learning services and Ryleigh, 6 was born with Muenke Syndrome which has already required numerous facial and cranial procedures and will require many more as she grows, all of which increases not only the financial strain from medical costs but a great deal of time, effort and emotion.
In lieu of flowers or gifts we, as her family, ask for a donation to help the family feel secure in this time of amazing insecurity about the future. Give what you can, know it is appreciated beyond measure and know that your generosity will go to help Kyle and her children focus on healing and rebuilding with less worry and stress about the financial burden, strain and things no one should have to worry about but especially at a time when family, love, loss and faith are the things they should be focusing on. Please keep Kyle, Madison (18), Noah (15), Grace (11) and Ryleigh (6) in your thoughts and prayers as they learn to navigate life without their amazing husband and father, John. We know they will find a way to work through their grief and in their faith and family find hundreds of ways to make John proud every single day but for now we know that your thoughts, prayers and generosity will help ease the burden during this very difficult time.
Thank you and may God bless you and your family.
