Sweet Emma Rose

Our dear little Emma got her wings last night. She passed away around 11:00 PM last night. It happened suddenly and quickly. She didn't suffer. This amazing little girl has left us here on earth but she remains forever in our hearts. We love you sweet Emma and are so proud of you. You have taught us so much in the cherished time that we had with you. While you were here it was so easy to forget that you one day would not be. Now reality can no longer be denied. We will miss our little sweet heart and the sweet little sounds you made and most of all we will miss cuddling you while breathing in your sweet baby smell. Rest in peace sweet girl and know that we will always love you .

A butterfly lights beside us like a sunbeam And for a brief moment its gloryand beauty belong to our world.
But then it flies again And though we wish it could have stayed...We feel lucky to have seen it.

I think of this passage you have on your blog - "Every experience God gives us, Every person he puts in our lives is the perfect preparation that only he can see" - - and I hope that it gives your family some comfort.

We are all hugging our children a bit tighter tonight and thanking God for our many blessings.

May he give your family the strength you all need to understand this great loss.
