Emilia Clare Parrish

Our beloved daughter Emilia Clare Parrish, whose heart stopped beating while she was in the womb, was born surrounded by love and light, and even some laughter, on Saturday September 5, 2020. Our Father, creator of life, called Emilia into existence and loved her before all time. He brought her into our family and has taken her home to heaven on a timeline that we do not understand. But we have faith and trust in the Lord’s unchanging goodness, love, and mercy. We rejoice in the good that is Emilia’s existence while simultaneously balancing the pain of having to give her back to God so much more quickly than we planned. In our grief, we take comfort in the hope of a heavenly reunion. Also, we know that God loves Emilia more than we do, and that must be a lot, because we love this little girl with all our hearts. Ultimately, we understand that she is God’s child, but we pray that he heals our broken hearts as we live with the reality of her life not being on earth with us as we had envisioned.

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.

He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.

He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.
