Hers was a truly wonderous, and beautifully innocent soul. I will forever cherish the memories/legacy of her kindness, and breadth of compassion. The world is a truly lessened place with your departure, and I will always love and miss you, Emily. Be at peace

Emily and I got close when my Grandma started bringing me to church. She became one of my best friends. We would take care of the little ones in the nursery on Sunday night, and Wednesday night, and me, Emily, and our friend Penny would go out on visitation for the bus ministry on Saturday mornings. We shared a lot of good times, and a lot of great memories! You will most definitely be missed Emily. To Emily's family, you are in my thoughts and prayers and will continue to be. Love you all.
