Florence, SC – At 9:52 a.m. Sweet baby Emersyn “Emmy” Lynn Rogers entered the world on August 23, 2017 and spent seventy-one loving sweet minutes resting on her mother’s chest while her dad sat close by holding onto and rubbing her hand. She held on until she could be dedicated to the Lord, and as soon as Pastor Ben McLaughlin said “Amen” at 11:03 a.m. she passed peacefully.
Emmy is daughter of Michael and Brandi Gardner Rogers. She is the baby sister to Lawson and Haigan Rogers. Maternal grandparents are Mike and Cindy Gardner and paternal grandparents are Chuck Rogers and Karen Dawkins.
A funeral service will be Monday, August 28, 2017 at 11:00 a.m. at Lake Swamp Baptist Church, Timmonsville, SC. Interment will follow at Florence Memorial Gardens.
Her parents are so proud of the many lives that she has touched in a short life. She was the first to use the Cuddle Cot at McLeod’s. Funds were raised to purchase two Cuddle Cots in her name, one for the NICU and one in labor and delivery. She was the first new born to donate organs for research in South Carolina.
The family would like to “THANK” everyone for donations, prayers and visits during this journey.
If you plan to attend the service her parents request that you wear something green.
Layton-Anderson Funeral Home, 4210 W. Palmetto St. Florence is assisting the family with arrangements.
