perez family, it has been in my heart for some months now to leave a message, a word of thanks to you and your family. my heart swells with pride as i read the accounts of such an amazing young life. what honor, courage and absolute pride. it shall always be a great regret that i never had the privilege to meet emily.
this summer i will be walking across the country in a show of gratitude and support for our troops. i would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the the gift of your emily. may God continue to comfort your family and may you be blessed for the selfless giving of your girl. thank you.
