With the same peace and grace Emily exhibited in life, my beautiful wife and best friend left this world yesterday. Circled by friends and family whispering her much-deserved praise, she made her exit. We held her hands, we rubbed her feet, we kissed her forehead and we said goodbye to the best person we will ever know.
In the coming days, we will finalize plans to celebrate her extraordinary life and the impact she had on so many. In the mean time, we will focus on being thankful just to have known and existed alongside such a remarkable person.
If you would like to express your own thankfulness for Emily and sympathy for her friends and family, in lieu of flowers, we ask that donations be made to one of the following organizations.
Thank you to everyone who has helped us to carry this burden. The road was smoother and the load lighter with all of your help. As we are thankful for Emily, know that she was also so thankful for each of you.
