Emily, you were both my mama and sister. When we were youngster, you did your best to protect us. As a matter of fact you did so much, we actually went through an era wherein we thought you were our mama. You were quiet and soft spoken which lead many to believe you were a push over. But as years went on, I discovered how wrong those opinions were. You were headstrong and bubbly. I loved your laughter and gentle touch. As I grew away from you, the more I understood you. In so many words, I tried explaining this to you. I am not sure whether you truly ever understood my admiration of you; but hopefully somehow....my love managed to push through. I pray your eternal rest will find peace in the arms of Our Father and His Precious Son, Jesus. AMEN.
