Condolence & Memory Journal

I was so sorry to hear of Emily's passing, and stand with you in Faith and Love for our Lord, asking Him to gently help you through this horrible loss all of you are going through right now. I lost a daughter almost 9 years ago, and my heart breaks for you knowing that the days ahead will be long and hard, but she is with Him now and knowing Emily briefly in AWANA, she would want you to know how much she loved you and the Lord. If I can help in any way...having walked this road myself, please don't hesitate to ask; every time I get a chance to share about Cheryl, her being there makes more sense to me and that is such a comfort. God be with all of you and know I will be praying for Peace that passes understanding for you in the days to come! In Jesus name, Joanne Wolf, Calvary Baptist

When we were color mates in Awana, we were two peas in a pod. An older sister figure to me if you will. We memorized our verses together, played during fun time, and whispered little jokes to each other when our teacher was speaking. Although we didn't go to the same school and only saw each other about 3 hours a week, she was a joy to be around. The first three words that come to mind when I think of Emily, is spunky, funky, and wild. A little spit fire with hilarious jokes. But when time went on, we parted ways. Only little blips of her in my memory now. But her curly blonde hair stood out. A child never has to pass before their parents. I grieve alongside you and your family is in my prayers. The last thing Ill say is have hope. You'll see her smile once again, live your life for her.

Hi Lisa and Chris and family,
I am very sorry to hear about your precious Emily. I wish I knew something that could comfort you all. We really will be praying. I have reached out on Facebook but you probably don't get the chance to get on there much. I remember meeting Emily at your home when all our kids were very little and we stayed over night. Please email or call if you ever get the chance we still have our WI phones. We love you. Pam Shuler for Paul, Paul, Nate, Klara and Ben
