Merry Christmas, Emma. You are missed. You are loved.
Merry Christmas, Emma. You still amaze me.
Merry Christmas, Emma. What’s He really like?
Merry Christmas, Emma. Smile. Relax. Celebrate.
You are missed. You are loved.
Our house has memories of Emma everywhere. My behavior and my beliefs on how to treat people have Emma stamped into my core.
You still amaze me.
Unknowers condemn how you left this world. Believers twist theology, too. Yet, your influence may be stronger now than it ever was. Maybe they should try living your first five years. Maybe they should try having a resulting mental health diagnosis. Maybe they should try living physically disadvantaged. You fought so much. You still amaze me.
What’s He really like?
Honestly? I’m more than little jealous. I had the privileged to teach you about Him. Now there is so much I’m sure you want to teach me.
Smile. Relax. Celebrate.
Freedom of movement and peace of mind. You could sing a joyous tune when you worshiped…even if the tune was always more than a little out of tune. Celebrate, baby girl. Celebrate.
Beautifully written, Emma’s dad. I’m more than a little jealous of people who have gone on before me, as well. We will see Him and be reunited with our precious children, and for that I can rejoice. Thank you for sharing your heart about your beautiful daughter. Grace and peace to you.
So beautifully written from the soul. Emma will always be celebrated in our home. Emma was ALWAYS the first smile and hello to me when entering the same room as the kids. Her spirit of life was so admirable. Despite her hurt she still was so present in everyway physically and mentally. I pray as a mother my children will have that much fight and love when things may not be “ like others.” Emma was a warrior, and even at a young age, Gage always had such repect for Emma. He realizes it more and more what he knows of her daily routine and gives him strength to know life may be different or hard, and Emma, I know taught him how to keep going, stay so loving even when in pain. Gage talks about Emma every time we talk about grade school days and how she was so tough and just wanted to keep up and enjoy all things. So that, I want to thank you for raising one of the most beautiful souls. She will never be forgotten, because she taught us so much for the time she was with us.
Merry Christmas Emma! I KNOW you’re dancing your butt off with an amazing smile! Merry Christmas to you all! Hugs, Lori
Beautiful and fitting. Merry Christmas Emma and to all of you.
