Do not stand at my grave and weep.
I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am the sparkle in the snow.
I am the shredded leaves that blow.
I am the sunlight on growing grain.
I am the gentle summer rain.
I am the quiet bird at night.
Circling about; Taking flight.
So do not stand at my grave and weep.
I am not there, I do not sleep.

To The Hilscher Family:
I am writing this brief note to your family because I so deeply feel that when we are faced with the sudden loss of someone so very dear to us that it is one of the hardest things in our lives we will have to face. Yet, I would like to share with you something that touched my heart, it is the knowledge that God will respond to our persistent prayers to help us through any tough time such as this. At Philippians 4:6 and 7 it says that "the peace of God that excels all thought will guard your heart and your mental powers." Please know that my prayers are with you at this time and I urge you to continue to pray for strength to get through the rough moments ahead. -- Psalm 55:22

RISE UP SLOWLY, ANGEL

Rise up, slowly, Angel.
I cannot let you go.
Just drift softly midst the faces,
In sorrow now bent low.

Ease the searing anger,
Born in harsh unyielding truth
That Death could steal my loved one
From the glowing blush of youth.

Rise up slowly, Angel.
Do not leave me here alone,
Where the warmth of mortal essence
Lies replaced by cold, hard stone.

Speak to me in breezes
Whispered through the drying leaves,
And caress my brow with raindrops
Filtered by the sheltering trees.

Rise up slowly, Angel,
For I cannot hear the song
Which calls you through the shadows
Into the light beyond.

Wrap me in your downy cape
Of sunshine, warm with love,
And kiss a tear-stained mother's face
With moonlight from above.

Then wait for me at sunset,
Beside the lily pond,
And guide me safely homeward
To your world,which lies beyond.

Just spread your wings and take me
In reunion’s sweet embrace,
And we shall soar, together,
To a different time and place.

To Emily's family and friends,
Our heavenly father promises at Isaiah 41:10-"Do not be afraid, for I am with you. Do not gaze about, for I am your God. I will fortify you. I will really help you. I will really keep fast hold of you with my right hand of righteousness". May you grasp hold of his hand and allow him to guide you through the coming days, weeks, months and years.
May you gain comfort from these additional scriptures:
Isaiah 25:8-"He will actually swallow up death forever."
Revelation 21:4-"And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away."
My husband was lost on 9/11 and these scriptural promises comfort me greatly.

I did not know Emily but she had the most beautiful smile. I am so sorry for your loss. You are in my heart and my prayers! God bless.

To The Family of Emily Hilscher-My deepest sympathy goes out to your family. Know that others care about how you are doing during this most difficult time in your lives. Take comfort from God's word and it will help you to get through this very painful period. My heartfelt prayers goes out to you and your family.(John 5:28,29; Rev. 21:3,4; Psalms 55:22)

We are Hokie parents too, and our prayers and thoughts will always be with you. We lost someone close at Tech that day.

I am so sorry. I cried watching the story about Emily loving horses.

I attended a prayer service for the victums of this tragedy on Thursday evening. 32 orange Carnations were presented and I had the honor of accepting one in memory of Emily. I just wanted to express my deepest sympathy for Emily and the rest of the Virginia Tech Family. Remember that God is always with us and it is in these times that he carries us in His loving arms. May God continue to uplift you in the coming days. My daughter attends Clemson University and I know that she and the Clemson family where deeply affected by this tragedy.
