Mommy's Letter to Emma

This letter was written by Emma's mom Jennifer and read at her funeral.

Emma,

The day you were born I was so thrilled for you were such a blessing. You are one of the three most beautiful girls that I have ever seen in my life. When I saw your fuzzy hair, immediately it reminded me of a sweet peach, from that moment on you were known as peaches. Now I know how appropriate that name was because you were delicate and sweet just like a peach.

When we found out that you were sick and that you were never going to get better I thought my world was going to end for I thought how can I be losing my beautiful baby, I shouted "Why" God why my child, this isnít fair. As time moved on and you became sicker I began to realize that God could never really take you from me because I know that you will forever be in my heart and in my mind and no one can take that away.

I only wish that everyone would have taken the time to know you the way that Daddy, Marissa, Ashley and I did, for you had the most beautiful smile and the most beautiful blue eyes, they would tell you a story just by looking into them and your smile could light up a room better than anything I have ever seen.

I know that you are in a better place where you are no longer suffering and I know someday that I will be able to see and hold you again but until then please always know that Mommy, Daddy, Marissa and Ashley will always, always remember you and cherish the short time that we had with you, I will think of you always and I await the day that I can kiss you soft cheeks again. You will always be my blessing from God and you will always be Mommyís Peach.

 

Love You Forever,

Mommy
