Our prayers are with you. We, sadly, have walked this path. Your Reese is beautiful. Your love and trust of our God is so obvious in you. Much love and many prayers will continue for the days ahead.

Katie,
I'm grieving for you. Our prayers and thoughts are with you and Jason and big brother,Zach. We will keep the details of the memorial service in our hearts and I will be prayer here in Tampa during that time. Know that the body of Christ is aching for you and standing in the gap when you have no words to utter.

Katie and Jason- Not sure if you remember me- I used to be Amanda McMullan. I just want you both to know how very sorry I am that this happened and my prayers have gone up for you every night. The Rowe's are so special to us and it breaks my heart for not only you two, but for the loving families that surround you. Please know that while I have no idea how you feel right now or what you are going through, God does things for a reason, even though we don't understand. He must have needed Reese to be in Heaven with Him to make people smile every day :) Rest easier knowing that one glorious day you will be reunited with her, no illness or sickness, just a healthy, precious baby girl all your own! All my love to you both and your families. Amanda

Our prayers are with you during this difficult time. Your Reese is so precious. I found out about your story from Kelly's Korner. I have tears in my eyes while writing this post. I admire your faith in God and your strength during this difficult time.

Melissa said...

I've been praying for your family (which I read about on Kelly's blog) and words can't express my deepest sympathies for your family. I know your beautiful baby girl is safe with Jesus now, but the pain of that must still be so very heavy as you prepared to care for her here on Earth. May your family be covered in prayer during this time.

I'm still praying for you.

Megan said...

Perhaps this poem has already been passed along to you. It was given to me a couple of years ago, and I still find some comfort in it. My prayers are with you and your family for peace and strength in you most difficult days.

Dear Mom.
I had to leave, please understand
I'm resting now in God's own hand.
I was just too weak, too sick to stay,
I would never run or jump or play.

That's not the way it's supposed to be;
A child wants more -- I hope you'll see.
I wanted to smile, to play, to love,
So I had to return to my Father above.

Mom, I thank you for keeping me close,
For giving me love, for keeping me warm,
For rubbing your belly and giving soft pats.
They comforted me and I love you for that.

Maybe some evening, late at night.
You'll look to the heavens and see a light,
A star that is twinkling high above,
It's me -- and I'm sending you my love.

Melissa said...

Katie, you've been on my mind and in my prayers constantly. Your strength is such a shining testimony of your faith in the Lord. I loved the picture of you with Zach, you are right, your sweet son will keep both you and Jason going in the coming weeks and months. Hold tight to him and know that one day you will be holding your sweet Reese again and she will wipe all of your tears away!

I am so sorry for what you are going through!!
As a mom-I just can only imagine your pain. I do thank God for the peace he will give you through this time. God Bless-My prayers are with you and your sweet family.

Julie said...

Katie,
Last summer I began walking the same journey that you have just been led to...and my heart breaks for your family because I know the pain that only a mother who has let go of her child feels. And there are no words...
Just know that so many people are praying for you and I hope you can feel that love wrap around you and your beautiful family.
Take one moment at a time and find comfort in our God, even though this is so hard to understand.
Thinking and praying for you...

Todd and Courtney said...

Sweet Rowe family,
You all don't know me but I stayed up super super late last night reading your blog from the very beginning so I could get to "know" you all. Your family is precious and I bet Reese is watching you all and can't wait to see you in Heaven. What a glorious day that will be. You're a beautiful mommy Katie!

Shelley said...

Katie and family,
I came over from Kelly's Korner. I do not know you but my heart aches for you. Since reading about your daughter earlier this week you have not left my mind, or my prayers. I cannot even begin to imagine how you feel right now. I praise God for giving you the few precious days you had with Reese and that you will always have memories of/with her. I pray that God gives you more strength than you need to get through the next few days, weeks, months. As I type this there are tears in my eyes.
Please know that there are prayers for you all coming from Milwaukee and they won't stop.

Laura said...

Thinking of you....I can see our babies playing together now. We will see them again...in a moment.

Sending love and rest for your broken heart.

frontporchthreads said...

I want to say thank you. I've wondered away from my faith and relationship with Jesus Christ. Over the last 3 days, your testimony and family have given me a light like I've never seen before. I've prayed like I've never prayed....
God bless your family and God bless your angel from Heaven, Reese.

Dawn said...

My prayers are with you and your entire family. May you gather God's strength as you move through the coming days...and beyond.

Harris Family said...

I just wanted to tell you that I think about you, precious Katie, day and night. I wake up in the middle of the night burdened to pray for you guys and I pray without ceasing all day long. I am so in awe of the strength that God has given you and Jason. Little Reese has touched so many lives- including mine. Know that we are continually praying and we will be thinking about you in the coming days.

Kelli said...

Just want you know that you are in my prayers...may you be blanketed with God's love.

Joy said...

Praying for God's peace, strength and love to pour over you.

Emily said...

We have been blessed with four sweet girls. Our third daughter, Miller Grace, went home to Jesus after five days here with us. I am so sorry for your loss, but I rejoice for your daughter, freed from her tubes and able to dance with her Savior tonight. Your Lord will carry you. Through good days - and they will come - and bad - and they will come. May you find peace in His arms and never be afraid to be real and weak, as you rest in Him and allow His strength to be made perfect in you. If there is ANYTHING I can do or say, I would be honored to. I have kept a blog since before Miller Grace was born. Feel free to check it out. I will remain on my knees for you.

Thank you, God, for baby Reese. May the ripples of her life spread far into eternity.

Caryn said...

I just want to let you know that strength is so inspiring. I know that you are greiving and are trying so hard to be strong, but you really are an inspiration. It is such a joy to know that Reese is a part of heaven. I think it just makes it that much more of a beautiful place. I will be thinking of you and your family and praying that peace will fill your hearts.

I am so very sorry for your loss. You are in my prayers.

May the Lord surround you with love and peace and give Reese all the love she has grown to know from you.

stevensfarm said...

With aching heart for your loss, I just had to post. Tears are streaming as I put myself in the shoes you are walking in at this moment and forever since losing your beautiful baby Reese. God will bring you through. Just want you and your family to know, prayers for you and yours are being offered up by your friends, family, and those who just hold you all in our hearts who have never had the pleasure of knowing you.

Vanessa said...

I will be thinking of you all on this day.
Huge hugs from across the pond.

Katie, Jason, and Zach-
There has not been a day gone by that I haven't prayed or you and your sweet family. My heart is heavy and aches for you. My hope is He is sending your pain our way to take some off of you. I see w/ your strength and trust in God you will come out of this stronger than ever. And to know Reese is waiting for you when you get there is most definetly the strength for you to keep going. Praying for you-Danielle in Canton, GA

Jess said...

God will carry you,your family and close friends through this.

Bless you! She is a beautiful baby that is at peace even if we don't understand why. I still get very baffled when God takes babies this young.(sorry it is kind of hard to word it is upsetting. I don't want it to sound wrong.)

My thoughts and prayers are with you!

PS~I heard about your blog through Kelly's Korner.
