My condolences to the family. I was Emily's biggest fan on Instagram and she was one of the best influencers that I have ever seen on Instagram. When I heard about Emily's passing, I cried all day and night trying not to believe that Emily left the world with her baby. I guess everything is in God's hands now. May Your Souls Rest In Peace Emily and Baby Joey

So sorry to read this about Emily, I knew Dr. Joe when he cared for my mom and later as one of my guitar students. I never met Emily but recall Joe speaking so fondly about her to me and telling me about her outstanding musical talent and abilities. I am shocked to hear of this for someone so young. Sympathy and prayers to Dr. Joe and family.
