    *wipes tears away* It seems as tho ever since I found out about this, all I can do is cry. Seems like I've been crying forever, and she's not even mine. That picture is so sweet. She sure fought hard!
    I, too, hope that you find comfort in the Lord at this time. And know that she's watching you and protecting you. You are all in my thoughts and prayers, and you will be - daily. May God bless and keep you.

    I am so sorry for your loss. I met you the day you found out that Emmie-Rose was a girl and I have thought about your family ever since. Our family has been praying for Emmie-Rose and her family every day, that God would hold you so close to Him during this time. Please know that we are still praying for you.

    Sadly,

    From next door,
    Stephanie, I am so sorry. Little Emmie was a real fighter, and the Lord has touched the hearts of many through her, and your love and bravery as well. Now she is in heaven, and though mourning and missing her is so hard, she can now pray for you, and comfort you. She will always be your little angel, and will see her again with the Lord. The Father is with you, closer than ever. Rest, and please let us know how to love and support you. I am right next door, David and Tim as well, just ask for whatever you need. You remain in our prayers. God bless you now and always, Sherry Boone

    God Bless you both.

    What a heart rending situation there are no words to express the depth of sorrow that I and everyone else has felt for you both. It is my deepest prayer that you feel God presence in the words of comfort and encouragement you are being given by so many people from so many places.

    I hope that you can find healing and strenght during this time of difficulty. If you need spiritual support I would be more than honored to be there with you both. PACW Perkowski www.miraclesalwayshappen.com

    I tried leaving tis message at the funeral home's internet guestbook, but it wouldn't let me. So, I am posting it here. *****



    I was truely sad to hear of Emmie-Rose's passing. She was a true fighter. She gave meaning to the word HOPE and was a testament to what the human spirit is capible of.
    I am very sorry for your family during this difficult time, and for what you have been put through by the uncaring medical team in charge. May you find peace in knowing your sweet little one is with the Lord. Michelle Kjelland~WI

    I just came from Emmie's funeral. It was a beautiful service and I'm glad that I went, despite the fact that I'm even sadder now...

    But my sadness can't possibly compare to what Chris, Stephanie, and the rest of Emmie's family are experiencing.

    Stephanie and Chris, it was a priviledge to meet both of you today. Emmie was a beautiful child, and she was fortunate to have you as parents.

    Bless you for touching my heart, little Emmie-Rose.
