Gifts of Love for Kenzie’s Family

On January 22nd, Ryan and Ashley lost their beautiful daughter, Kenzie Ellen Marie McMillen, suddenly and tragically after less than two days of life. As our families are dealing with the profound loss of our precious girl, our community has risen up and surrounded us with love. Many have asked how they can help, and we recognize that at this time it is vitally important to accept that support. 

The McMillen Family will face many challenges in the next days, weeks, and years, but the sudden loss of Kenzie has triggered a financial need for Ryan and Ashley. Medical costs and funeral expenses are the immediate need, as well as time away from work to grieve, and continued counseling. 

Above all, as time passes and life moves forward with its frenzied pace, please remember our family in your thoughts and prayers, and continue to reach out. We will always be thinking of our little Kenzie - treasured daughter, longed-for sister, beloved granddaughter, adored niece...and it will be an honor to know that she is remembered by others as well. 

If you feel like you would like to bless our sweet family, and can in this way, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. If there is another way you wish to give, please contact Kristen Bielenberg.
