Man oh man I don't even know where to begin. We have been through so much
together in the 8 years we have been friends and sisters. From boys to trucks to random dance parties and going out dancing and other random shenanigans such as putting on an obnoxious song, rolling down the windows and dancing and singing and not giving a care as to the people looking at us funny. There are the random trips to Walmart in sweat pants and boots, the trip to the NWSS on Martin Luther King day, riding horses and going on random trips in the truck, singing to just about every song that came on the radio. The conversations we would have and we
knew we could talk about anything and while we may not agree on everything, we could leave it in the conversation and move on. I miss your laugh and your voice. "Funny how the good ones go too soon but the good lord knows the reasons why I guess. Sometimes the greater plan is kinda hard to understand. Right now it don't make sense, I can't make it all make sense." Emily Sue , we have sang
these words so many times riding around in Silver (my truck) but I honestly never thought I would be singing them about you. We had many talks about what we were going to do when we decided to grow up and made plans for this summer such as Stampede, hiking and camping, riding horses, bonfires and going dancing to other places we had never been before. You were one of my own personal Cheerleaders, along with my other friends, helping me and pushing me to pursue my dreams. When we talked just a week before your passing, I know we said we wouldn't put anything on Facebook because that isn't how we wanted to remember each other, and honestly I still haven't been able to go to your page and read everything because it makes me sad. You are loved by so many Em, and I know you knew that. Being around your family has helped in so many ways, there are just
too many to count. The sting of your news still hurts, and I often find myself crying for no reason at a random time. I hope you are at peace Em, I know you are with The Lord. There are not many 23 year olds that spoke of their faith the way you did. I hope you watch over all those hurting, and you guide them through
the dark times and rejoice with them in the happy times. I will keep saying our favorite bible verse "I can do all things through Him who strengthens me" to help get through the rough patches. Stampede will not be the same without you Emmy. As I keep telling your parents, Wes, Audrey, little soon-to-be June Mary-Sue, Lucas and Tyler .... We will get through this together. I love you so much Emmy Sue and miss you every single day. Rest easy Em, your entry fees have been paid. You are now a princess of the sky.

Mike, Shelley, Wes, Audrey. Louie and Tyler,
You are all in my thoughts and prayer every morning when I get up and every
night before I go to bed. I am here for you guys, you all have been a part of my life for so long and have become a part of my family. I love you all very much. We will be together through the good and hard times.

Such an infectious laugh and a beautiful smile you have Emily! One thing I remember admiring about you years ago is that when you were talking to someone you made them feel like they were the most important person to you. I was very fortunate to know such a kind person that I looked up to for many years! When we went to stock show together a couple years in a row, you always looked like a country princess! You acted so silly sometimes but you just rocked it with a great amount of confidence (and pink!) I will forever miss your carefree nature and the way you truly loved people! God needed a princess and he knew you were the best one. Rest in paradise em, and much Love to the Porter family!

Dear Shelley, Mike, Lucas & Wes,
My heart goes out to you. I know personally how much these messages mean and will mean forever, so I wanted to share my heart with you. My love for your precious Emily grew greatly when I returned to EHS the school year after my precious Jesse went to be with our Lord and Saviour. She and her friend, made a conscious effort of making sure anytime they walked by me during passing periods, there was a sweet hug given, and so very much appreciated and received. They always had such beautiful smiles on there faces, and I can't even tell you how much that helped me get through that most difficult of times. I always found such heart warming joy in seeing her embrace her princess role. Truly a beautiful princess, in her very soul. What I remember making the biggest imprint on my heart, was how very much she loved her little brother Lucas. She was always stopping by the health room to check on him and make sure he was ok. Please know that you all are in my thoughts and prayers, and that I carry you in my heart. I am so very sorry for this terrible loss. I am here for you if I can help in any way.
May God's Peace be with you. You raised a beautiful, sweet daughter, and we share the longing in our hearts to see them again, on that blessed day.
With heart-felt sympathy,
Ms. Vicki

I know at a time like this no words will come even close to helping. Your sister was an amazing woman. I wasn't as close to her since she got married as I would have liked to have been or as close as we were in high school. She was such a welcoming person. She always, no matter what was happening had a way of making everyone smile. She was so positive and such a happy person. You couldn't be around her without falling victim to her positive attitude. Her giggles were contagious. I think we spent the most time together during track. That was more of an organized goof off time than actual practice for a sport. I loved when one of us would make a mistake, instead of us feeling down about it Emily would turn it around and all of us would end up rolling with laughter.
For Mrs. Grove's science class we convinced her it was necessary to go to the zoo. The day we went it was pouring rain. It was a terrible day for the zoo but we didn't let that stop us from having one of the best days of our lives. We were soaked from head to toe and ended up doing push ups in every puddle we came across. I can still see the huge smiles we had that whole day.
Lucas, your sister will forever hold a place in my heart. I am so lucky to have gotten to know her and experience the wonderful person that she was.
Please tell me anything I can do to help. I am so sorry for your loss. I know how close you two were. She talked about you all the time and she loved you so so much. That was clear to everyone.

On this day, Emily and I broke rules by driving to 6 flags (I was still only 16 and wasn't allowed to have passengers haha) then all of our stuff got stolen when we went to the water park and my dad had to come get us. We were caught red handed when he realized we only took one car lol. She was always so full of life and such a joy to be around! Love you girl!!
