Emily was an amazing person and I was privileged to be one of her teachers during her middle school years. It was amazing to watch her grow into such a bright and amazing young woman who could easily take on the world.
I pray for peace for all who were graced to have Emily in their lives at one point or another. Rest peacefully Emily.

I am so sorry to hear of Emilys passing. My heart breaks for you all. She was such a sweet baby and toddler as I remember her. I will always remember you all. As a mother who lost a son almost 2 years ago I know how hard it is!
Please let me know if I can help in some way. Know that I am praying for you all and the peace that come from only God and His promises.
