Pat, Debbie, and family

I am just now learning of Emily's passing. (I am currently in the hospital with health challenges). I remember when Emily was born and seeing her at times as she was growing up as a little girl.

God Bless you all.

My prayers go out to the family! Was a year ahead of Emily. Her smile was so infectious and could light up a room.

My heart is breaking that we've lost such a beautiful soul.

Pat/Debbie and family.
It was never meant for parents to lose their children. It is heartbreaking and changes one's lives forever. My family sends their prayers and condolences to you and hope you know she is everything she ever wanted to be and better now that she has joined her grandparents in heaven.

Todd and kids:
Sorry for your loss. Hugs.

I am so sorry to hear of your loss. I give you my deepest condolences. She shred the same birthday with my son who was 2 years younger, (also deceased). Keep your loved ones and faith close at this very difficult time in your lives.

I am so sad to hear of Emily's passing. I did not know her well, but when I spoke with her at play dates and mom get-togethers she was always very kind and inviting. I hadn't seen her for awhile until Olivia started karate in the same class as my son. Her smile and friendliness will be missed. I am so sorry. Prayers to all family and friends.
