Deb, I will have Liliana Rose's smile in my mind and in my heart. My 23 y.o. son, Sean Patrick, died on Sept. 6, 2007 and he was very good with babies. He could always hold a crying baby and it would stop crying. I have prayed for him to hold Liliana Rose and make her feel safe. I am not about to tell you I know what you are going through, but I know what it is like to have your child die. If you want someone to talk to call me...810-3204.

Please go to this website and watch a video that relates and I hope you are blessed with more children not to ever replace your daughter but to carry on her!!Please see Natalie Grants song/video "I'm in better hands now" at gospelmusicchannel.com/node/741 You are in my prayers.
Donna Rogers left a message on April 6, 2009:
Debi & Steve, You two are such amazing parents. Liliana drew from your strength and fought so hard to spend as much time with you as she could. Her bright blue eyes lit up when she looked up at her mom & dad as they will now sparkle in the sky (like stars). You will know that everytime you look up and see the shining stars up there - they are a reflection of that angels eyes watching over you! She is now at peace with the Lord. We love you both and wish so much that we could be there for you on Saturday. I'll be home from the hospital on Monday. I'll call you next week. We'll be praying for you! Love, Donna & Travis Rogers
