Memorial Tributes

"My heart goes out to all who knew Emily. We have all suffered a tremendous loss. I had the honor of subbing on her team for her when she was out a few years ago. We also have been bowling against each other for years going all the way back to the good old Bowl Aurora days. I will miss her dearly and even more so our conversations about our love for bowling and the fried zucchini sticks we could order when they were available. Love you girlfriend!! I will meet you again in Paradise."

"So sorry for your loss. Emily was a great home nurse for me back in 1999 after a terrible car accident. She definitely was ONE IN A MILLION. R.I.P. Emily. You brightened so many lives, Thank you."

"We were so shocked to hear of Emily's death, but had to take some comfort that she had died doing something she loved.  Indeed our last email from her ended with: "Gotta go...bowling tournament". She had also sent regrets that she wouldn't be able to visit Chaz one last time (her older brother who was in home hospice in Pennsylvania) due to her Factor Five condition. Em was a wonderful hostess when we visited in Aurora on our way to a Tai Chi workshop a few years ago.  So glad we got to see her then. Chaz loved her dearly and I know Kim and Mel especially miss her like crazy - as will Kurt, Carl and Mark and her grandkids. May you find comfort in all kinds of memories..."

"When tomorrow starts without me
And I'm not there to see;
If the sun should rise and find your eyes
All filled with tears for me.

I wish so much you wouldn't cry
The way you did today;
While thinking of the many things
We didn't get to say.

I know how much you love me ...
As much as I love you;
And each time that you think of me,
I know you'll miss me too.

But when tomorrow starts without me
Please try to understand,
That an angel came and called my name
And took me by the hand.

She said my place was ready
In heaven far above;
And that I'd have to leave behind,
All those I dearly love.

But as I turned to walk away,
A tear fell from my eye;
For all my life, I'd always thought
I didn't want to die.

I had so much to live for,
So much yet to do;
It seemed almost impossible,
That I was leaving you.

So when tomorrow starts without me,
Don't think we're far apart ...
For every time you think of me,
I'm right here ... in your heart."

"Em was one of the most wonderful ladies I have ever met.  She welcomed me into the family like a daughter when I was so far from any family.  I loved her dearly and she is greatly missed.  Love you!"

"My sister-in-law, Emily, was a loving daughter, supportive sister to brothers, Chaz and Bob, protective mother to Mark, Melanie, Karl, Kimberley  and Kurtis. and a caring friend to everyone who had Emily in their circle of friends. She was a competitive sports woman to the very end. Condolences to all of her family and large circle of friends."

"Em was a fellow bowler and friend. I miss her laughter and sense of humor. Her guidance of me when I would stray and get into mishap at bowling or just as we were hanging around being goofy is greatly missed. Em and I endured the train ride to Reno Nevada {and our many road trips} together. I regret that she had to make this one last journey by herself. The last thing she told me in Longmont was she wanted to stay near friends and family. I will carry you in my heart and think of you in all our old haunts."

"Emily was so sweet and motherly, I felt immediately taken care of and fussed over in the best way the first time I met her. She was very talented, sweet, and funny, and will always be missed."

"Em was a great woman and always treated me like a son!!! She did things for me that I still cant believe she did. I have a  lot of great memories of her and I will never forget how great she treated all of us as we were growing up.

Kurt, Kim, Carl and Mark I'm very sorry for your loss"
