Thinking of You  / Deanna Lawson (Friend)
Brian and Wendy,  It pains me to even have to write this to the both of you.  My daily thoughts and prayers are with you and your entire family in this time of sorrow.  You are feeling things that no parent should ever have to feel and I am truly sorry for your pain. Know that I think of Emily often and can only take comfort in the fact that she is Jesus' hands now.  Love you both.
My heart cries out for you  / Gena Ikner (Mommy's Bestfriend )
   The pain I feel for you can not be described.  Losing a child is the most dificult time in life.  Though we do not know all the answers, I do know that God is a gracious God.  He loves you and feels your pains.  i pray that he will bring complete healing in your life and hearts.  Emily is a beautiful child and I have asked God why over and over.  Though it is not for me to know all the answers, I still wonder.  I pray for you, Brian, and the boys.  May God protect you and give you such piece.  I wish I could be there to hold you in my arms and just love you.  Please know that I do pray for your healing and restoration. 

  I am truly sorry for your lose.  Words can not bring comfort, but you know that God can bring peace.  You are an answered prayer to wendy and the boys.  i want to thank you for giving her such joy once angain in her life.  May Gods peace and love rise up inside you

Love Gena
"MY child On the day God took you I thought that I would die I wondered where the time went? I asked alot of whys?? With people all around me I felt alone inside From all their words of comfort, I couldn't seem to hide, I thought I might be dreaming That I'd wake and find you here, I thought "This can't be happening." As I wiped another tear. On the day that you were laid to rest My heart broke yet again, I wondered if the pain would end, But mostly, I wondered when?? It's hard to be without you, At times the days seem long, Sometimes I just sit crying, When there's really nothing wrong. I wish we'd had more time, Before your life was done. I hope your resting peacefully, My precious child,
Many prayers  / Stephanie
You are in my heart and prayers.

Wendy and Brian-

I too do not go a day without thinking about Emily or your family. You are in my thoughts and prayers everyday. One day you will be together again and knowing that should bring hope to you. Remember, I'm here if you need anything.

Thinking of You  / Sharon Levy (Friend)
Wendy & Brian, you and your family are constantly in my thoughts.  No one should have to go through what you are going through.  I hope you find strength in each other and knowing that you are loved by many.  I am thankful to have known Emily, even if for just a brief moment.  She was (is) a precious little angel!  You will always be in my thoughts!   Sharon
I Miss You Sweet Baby Girl  / Mommy (Mommy)
I miss you so much, my sweet baby girl.  There isn't a moment that goes by that we don't think of you and miss you.  Your brothers cry many nights as they draw pictures for you, wishing you would come back to us.  We know that your baby sissie, Katie, knows that you're not here.  Whenever we ask her where Emi is, she replies "JESUS!"  It's precious.

I long to hold you, to nurse you one more time.  This is not how I thought I would be weaning you. 

I love you so much Emily Grace and I can't wait to see your gorgeous face again ~ until then, have fun with Jesus and know that we are loving you, with every ounce of our being...everyday....forever!

I feel your pain!  / Jeanifer James (Talon's Mommy )
I am so sorry for your loss, I know the pain you are feeling right now is unbearable-I lost my little boy, Talon on June 13, just four and a half months ago. He was only six years old. Part of me died with him, my heart is broken and it will never be the same. But just know that you will see your angel again one day-that's what keeps me going! Stay strong! Please visit Talon's website http://talon-james.memory-of.com, if you need to talk one Mommy to another you can e-mail me at JeaniferJames@digitex.net!
The Letter From Mommy to Emily; As Read At Her Funeral  / Mommy (Parents)

My Sweet & Precious Princess, Emily Grace:

I would give my very life and breath if I could hold you in my arms right now.  I miss you more than words could ever express.  You were the sunshine in my day.  You were the very beat of my heart.  You have forever changed my life.  You were the daughter that God promised to me, years ago, and you brought such GRACE and joy and love into our family and for that we are eternally grateful.

Your life touched so many people.  We are just now beginning to see the manifestation of the joy and love that you spread.  In your short 31 months, 1 week and 1 day on this earth, Jesus used you to bless so many and bring love, laughter and life to more than you’ll ever know.  Your smile would light up a pitch black room.   The sparkle in your eyes were breathtaking.  I love every inch of your body, your heart, your soul, YOU. 

Your Daddy and I are still so bewildered at how this could be.  Or as you started saying just a few days before you went to be with Jesus, “How can be this?”  You had such an abundance of adorable sayings that we called “Emilese” and every single one of them were precious and made us laugh.

Your Daddy and I hurt so much knowing that we weren’t there to help you.  Because we didn’t know that you were in any sort of distress, we weren’t there.  Please know that had we known, we would have flown upstairs to be right by your side, helping you however we could.  We have asked Jesus over and over again “HOW COULD THIS HAPPEN?  WHY DIDN’T YOU ALERT US?”  But He hasn’t given us any answers, yet.   

I know that Heaven is a better place now because you’re there.  I wonder if you’re sitting on Jesus’ lap?  Are you teaching Him your goofy dance?  I wonder if they have unlimited amounts of popsicles and fruit snacks in Heaven?  If they don’t, you make sure to ask for them!!  One of Jesus’ favorite sayings is:  “Ask and Ye shall receive!”  So ask away, my baby girl!! I wonder if you’ve gotten to watch your favorite show -- Dora the Explorer yet?  Do they even have TV in Heaven? 

If you can see down on us, know that the tears we cry are tears of love for you.  We miss and we love you with every beat of our heart, with every breath that we take and we count the days until we can see your beautiful face again.  Until then, we know that you will make Jesus laugh – and make sure that you teach the other babies in Heaven how to go potty – you had just gotten SO good at that, and we were all SO proud of you!  If we had a way to get you the suckers and sticky stars that you got for going potty, we would do it!! We will save all of your Dora panties for your baby sister, Katie Joy.  If Jesus has a stroller for you, make sure to tell Him that you want to “walk like a big girl” You always loved it when we let you “walk like a big girl”   

Your Daddy, Na-Na, Do-Do and KK miss you all so much.  There is an incredible void in our family now and it’s Emily-shaped.  You enriched all of our lives so much and we will never forget you, sweet Princess.

There’s so much more that I want and need to say to you.  I know that as the shock and numbness wear off, I will be able to tell you more of what’s in my heart.  For now though, sweet baby girl, I thank you.  Thank you for changing my life.  Thank you for loving me unconditionally and teaching me what it means to love a daughter like I never knew I could.  Thank you for being my precious cuddle bug and for the endless “big bear hugs” and kisses that you gave…I’ll love you forever and forever you’ll be my sweet and precious baby girl. 



RAK / Marrianne Adams (Friend of a friend of the family )

Bobbie Westbrook came in to our office today with drinks for everyone and said "you've been RAK'd" and she laid down a piece of paper.

As we all read the paper we realized we wanted to the same thing in Emily's honor.

I took cookies down to the girls that run the Kits n' Kaboodle toy store, gave them Emily's flyer, and asked them to do the same.

Thank you for doing this.

God bless you and your family.

a prayer of your angel  / One Who Cares (for all )
Oh your angel is glowing, she takes up your mind both night and day, your thoughts of her, and her doing things her way, she knows your love was oh so true, and she always had faith because of you, so she knew Lord, in the morning I start each day, By taking a moment to bow and pray. I start with thanks, and then give praise For all your kind and loving ways. Today if sunshine turns to rain, If a dark cloud brings some pain, I won't doubt or hide in fear For you, my God, are always near. I will travel where you lead; I will help my friends in need. Where you send me I will go; With your help I'll learn and grow. Hold my family in your hands, As they follow your commands. And I will keep you close in sight Until I come home to you tonight. God Bless you ALL Your faith, love and devotion to one another is endless God is watching over you
Playing Today  / Lynn House
I have been thinking about you a lot today. My heart breaks that this is your reality. This huge loss that sucks the breath right out of you and leaves you with this gaping hole in your heart.

I just wanted to share this one thing: We celebrate birthdays on this side of heaven to let our loved one's know we are so happy they were born. It's a celebration of their life and who they are. But in heaven, I believe Emily is celebrating life every day. I have no idea what that life is like but I am willing to bet it's beyond anything in our wildest imaginations. So today, as much as it hurts, I pray that you will find some joy in knowing that Emily can have birthday cake any dang day she wants it because her life was hidden in Christ and is now revealed in all its glory... for His glory. May you find peace and joy - as hard as it is in all of the loss, I pray it will come and you will have HOPE.

Thanks for sharing your story!
Remembering you today  / Jody Ferlaak (I lost an Angel too... )

Happy Birthday in Heaven, Emily Grace.

I know your family still misses you every moment of everyday. Today, in a very special way I know they will be thinking of you, smiling at the memories they have of you and shedding tears that they can't kiss you and love on you in person.

What a blessing you were and still are to them in many ways. May your life continue to touch and inspire others through them.

Thoughts of you on this memorable day. Sweetly~ Jody
