To The Perez Family:
My prayers are with you during this time of great sorrow. I was deeply saddened when I heard of Emily's passing. Emily was intelligent, confident, and just an all-around beautiful person. Although we hadn't kept in touch much since high school, Emily and I did get a chance to sit down and catch up at the OHHS class reunion. It was such a blessing to be able to see and talk to her. She was a courageous soldier who was proud to serve our country. Please take comfort in knowing that Emily was an inspiration to many and that her spirit lives on in all the people she has touched. God Bless.
