To my beautiful cousin Emily – I have held off on writing something because, to be honest, I don’t know what to say. This is such a shock to our family. You have managed to go through more in your short time here on earth than most go through in a lifetime, and yet you did so with so much courage, strength and dignity. There aren’t enough words to describe how proud I am of you. You continue to give me strength, even though you are gone. I’ll never forget the first time you met my son, and how he smiled the minute he saw you. You were a natural with kids.
I wish I could have one more day with you, one more conversation. Our last one was so short, but so powerful. You told me “I’m okay. I hope you and the kids have a great Halloween.” That was you. Thinking of others before yourself.
I love you Emily. I’ll never forget the strength you have shown, your positive attitude, your selfless words, and your beautiful smile. Fly with the angels. You’ve made our family so proud.
