I don't have any cool pictures to share, but many others have. I only had positive memories of you in school. You will always be on that short list of people that I really wish I had an opportunity to be better friends with back when we were in HS. You are a great person and I will never forget you.

Dearest Cousin Emmy,

I was so blessed to have you as a family member. Your positive impact, on my life, will last a lifetime... Your lessons were numerous. Your attitude of gratitude, unconditional love, empathy, compassion, bravery & strength were unparalleled.

I don't have enough words in my vocabulary to describe how much you meant to me. Your children Elizabeth & Nate, your husband Tony, your Mom/ my Aunt & all of your other friends & family members are in my ongoing thoughts & prayers. I know you were loved deeply.

I'm sorry our plans for the future were unattainable. My only comfort is that you're now at peace. Fly high sweet cousin! You were an angel on earth & now you're an angel in heaven.

Love Always,

Sarada

Emmy & I worked together at the Kiley Center. What a beautiful, caring woman you were. We had many talks over the years at Kiley. I knew I could count on you no matter what. We had many crazy days but you always had a smile. In my heart always.

I worked with Emmy at the Kiley Center. She always had a smile on her face and was always there to help out when needed. She will be missed deeply.

I met you my freshman year of high school. And although I moved away after my sophomore year, we became good friends because of cheerleading and the classes we shared, and because you were just such an outstanding person. Everyone wanted to be your friend, and I'm so blessed that you were mine. I'm so glad we kept in touch and even attended each other's weddings! Even though we didn't see each other often, I always thought of you and prayed for you especially after I'd learned of your illness many years ago. We are truly sad to be missing a bright light in this world, but I'm thankful that you no longer have any discomforts or limitations. God was ready for you to return to Him. I pray for peace and comfort for your family and loved ones. You touched many lives and are truly loved. It will take a lot of time to get used to you being gone. Tolerate the heartache because we were fortunate to have known you, even if it was for a short while. Love.

Emmy was the 1st of us with a car. We would pick up some fries and drive for hours. It seemed all roads lead to the beach! Love that girl!

Emmy is at the top of my list of most amazing women. Not only was she a strong woman, she was also the most caring, kind hearted person I knew. I met Emmy when I was 20, and we instantly connected. It was never a dull moment when we hung out. I am thankful for the memories, and Blessed that no matter what, we made sure to catch up with each other even if it was months inbetween. You will forever be in my Heart!!
Emmy, I will cherish our friendship forever!! 💞
