Emmi was the type of person who always wanted to take care of everyone. Whether it be animals or humans she was so loving. She always had kind things to say about others and had a charisma about her that I admired. She was intelligent, sweet, hilarious, caring, silly and the most thoughtful person I'd ever met. She helped my family when we needed basic necsessities.
She was always patient and kind to my children and invited them to see her animals, unfortunately I never got the opportunity to take them. My son always says how he wanted to visit "pemmis farm". She was so sweet to my children and talked about how she wanted to catch a frog for my son so he could have one as a pet. I got the pleasure of hanging out with her a week before her passing. We took a walk at a lake and fed the ducks. We both really love birds and I am so glad we decided to go for that last walk. It was something so simple but is something I'll remember forever. She had given me a pretty necklace the last day I saw her and it hangs on the middle mirror of my car, so I can look a it everyday and have a reminder of the wonderful friend I had in Emmi. I may not of known her very long but I will miss her always. I am so happy you are free of pain and don't have to be confined in the frail physical body you had here. Her family is in my thoughts. Love you Emmi. You are now the brightest star in the sky.

In my life I have never met a more intrinsic, selfless incredibly beautiful soul than Emily Mcmail. Her kindness would overwhelm you when she came into any room. I had the privilege of living with and befriending her on complete accident at the start. My wife and I were in a situation where we had lost our home. I paid the first and last at a house we were going rent and couldnt come up with the deposit and the landlord rented it to someone else the day I came with the money. Emily standing outside the house had heard what had happened to us and she immediately made it a point to tell the landlord people how rotten it was to take our money and get our Hope's up then crush them immediately after promising us s place to live. Emily (a stranger then) invited my wife and I to live in a spare bedroom of her home. I got to meet an incredible musician her father and the hardest working woman I've ever met Beverly her mother. As time went by Emily and I became very good friends. I had dinner with her and got to cry with her two days before she passed. She told me that she was leaving this world soon and I lost it. My heart will always carry a piece of Emily with me and hopefully someday I'll be half as kind and half as loving as she was. I am truly going to miss her. Her life gave me hope again for this world that there still is people out there who put others before themselves because God knows she did. I know she will have a special place in heaven. I was suppose to hand out blankets at the homeless shelter with her the day she died. Even barely able to walk she wanted to help other people. What a privilege to have met such a beautiful person.

Emily Rose Mcmail is such a sweet, beautiful and kind friend. I met her the first time in middle school when we did a science project together. That led to more memories over the years like hanging out at her house, working together in high school, her taking me out to ride one of her horses for the first time despite being terrified to. She was always someone I could talk to about anything. She took care of our dog Bronco when we needed it. She always had this love for animals that you saw by clear observation because she was always so attentive towards them. Emi is a true friend that I will miss very much and I hope we see each other again. Emily’s spirit will live on, in me and everyone else’s lives she touched.

My thoughts are with the Mcmail family.

Emi will be truly missed. She was, and still lives on in my memory as an amazingly generous, kind and brilliant influence in my life during some difficult years. I hope her family knows how much I love them and miss them. They were such an amazing support system for her and even for me at times. McMail Family - you're in my thoughts and I wish you all comfort and peace during this time.

Emily was my first friend when I started at as a receptionist at Microsoft in July 2008.
From the moment I met her I knew I was in for some adventures. The first time she asked me to hang out, she said “do you like to hike?” And I said yes. So she invited me on an 11 mile hike to Surpise Lake with an 2700 ft. elevation gain. I was so inexperienced, our small group had to take it slow because I had to stop and rest. Not once did she complain, she just helped me with my backpack load. She was so thoughtful and caring. After that
I even followed her skydiving for the first time. You really made this shy girl get out of her shell.
Something I will never forget. I will always be grateful for Emi.
I will miss her intelligence and sassy, sarcastic attitude. She was a wealth of knowledge and a cowgirl through and through. She was a true animal whisperer! She would tell me all about her pets she’s cared for and loved and even nursed back to health.
I loved our talks inside your kitchen or outside your house just looking up at the stars in Monroe. Happy trails to you, until we meet again.
My deepest condolences. Bev, Tom, Ben Amanda

With love,
Ms. Moxie-Hoxie
