|“I’m glad we had the times together just to laugh and sing a song, seems like we just got started and then before you know it, the times we had together were gone.” ― Dr. Seuss|
"Hi dear daughter! I really wish I was doing this in person!! I would give you sooooo many hugs and lots of kisses! You are not forgotten! I think of you every day and send thoughts your way!!! Katherine is here with me and we will light a candle for you today. I love you and miss you so much!!!"
"Dear Emily, Today is the 40th anniversary of your birth!!! I can't tell you how much I wish you were here to get all the big time birthday wishes!!! Even though you got so mad if I said anything about getting close to 40!!!! So hugs and love to you dear Emily!!! I love you with all my heart!!!!"
"Dear Emily! I lit two candles for you today so will leave you flowers now! I still miss you so much and think about you every day! It doesn't seem possible that you've been gone for two years now! I put some new pictures of you in my Emily journal! I love you dear daughter, be at peace!!!!"
"Hey Emily, I still miss you. Sorry life was so difficult for you."
"Thinking of Emily today, and of the people in her life who still grieve for the loss of their daughter/sister/cousin/friend. Anniversaries are hard days, and I wish I could wrap my arms around each of you. Emily will always be missed."
"Dearest Emily, yesterday was the year anniversary of your leaving the hard world behind! It doesn't seem possible that you have been gone for a year! You are so missed! Yesterday Katherine, Andy, Kristin , Jack Henry and Will and I planted a beautiful garden in your honor! There is a beautiful crepe myrtle surrounded by flowers and a beautiful stone that Katherine had made just for your garden at her house! I think you would love it!!!! I love you Emily and miss you more than you can ever imagine!!! Mom"
"Emily was stubborn, childlike, in control and out of control, excitable, had the ability to feel strongly and to be felt strongly. In the end her out of control self, took her life. Her life was just a few decisions from extraordinary. The demons that won the battle that caused her death were more than she could deal with. The demons won and the world lost. I have no understanding of how and why she would give into the control of drug demons when she loved to be in control. I think she was looking for the next high or moment of excitement. When she was close to stopping the demons, she invited them back and went with the demons to a new high, that was more than her body could handle.
Emily had a large number of people in Abilene and elsewhere that cared very dearly for her. She is dearly missed.
Emily, on the 1 year anniversary of your death, rest in peace."
"Dearest Emily, here I am again! Wish I was with you! I check the weather in Angel Fire and always think of the beauty there and hope you approve our decision to have your ashes there! I miss you every day and wish you were here! I love you! Mom"
"Dearest Emily, Just lit your candle and wanted to send you a note. Not a day goes by that I don't think of you! Sometimes happy thoughts, sometimes sad thoughts! But whatever my thought for that day there is always such a longing to see you again! I love you and miss you and would give anything to have seen you before you left!"
"Dearest Emily, I lit your candle today! February threw me off , it just having 28 days! Anyway! Am thinking of you and missing you soooooo! Sending love to you! Went to a group dealing with loss of a child! Wow, don't know why I ever thought losing you would get easier!,,,I am okay, but my life will never be the same without you! I love you!Mom"
"Dearest Emily, thinking of you so much today! It doesn't seem possible that you've been gone from us for six months! I miss talking to you! I miss your quirky ways and you're sense of humor! I love you dear daughter! I give your teddy bear lots of hugs and remember how much you loved him! It makes me feel close to you!,, Love, MOM"
"Dear Emily, thinking of you and wishing I could call and wish you a happy new year! Things will never be the same without you! Know that you are missed by many and loved by those left behind!"
"Emily, there are lot's of could'a beens, would'a beens, and should'a beens about your life. You were so talented in so many ways. So capable. You loved being in control. But, I believe your were intoxicated with the idea of being excited, and, in the end, took things too far. You were loved by so many people and now you are missed by all of us. If you just could have just of toned down the excitement a bit, you would of done many great things. Miss you "my would'a, could'a, should'a daughter"... Happy birthday."
"Dearest Emily, spent last night remembering when you were born! What a joyful time! Did I ever tell you you were always going to be named Emily if you were a girl? Mergetroid if a boy!;). I lit your candle and will be thinking of you all day!,, Happy Birthday! I love you, Mom"
"Another month has passed and am still missing your presence in this world!! Love you dear daughter and will think of you all day!!!!"
"Dear Emily, can't believe you've been gone for two months! I miss you're wit and your smile every day! I love you! I lit a candle today and will leave it burning all day!"
"I was saddened to learn of Emily's passing away shortly afterwards. She was not my student at Clarke, but I was very fortunate to get to know her thru our times together during study hall & weekends. She was a very lively bright girl with boundless energy, inquisitiveness, and zest for life. We enjoyed many discussions together and can relate, we both are oral. I will miss her lots!"
"Emily was one of those rare spirits. She had zest for life. Emily I will never forget your smile and how you always looked for a challenge. I hate that I never had the chance to say I love you and miss you. Its not fair that you are gone.. you were just in the prime of your life. You had so much to give and now you're not here..."
"You were my best friend for a couple of years..until I went back home to fort worth..you were my fiance..we. lived together ..I got to know who you really are..and I was in love with you for many years.. I haven't seen you for a few years.. because I was living in Fort Worth Texas.. I was trying to look you up and find out what you were up to. then I saw this Memorial. it's very sad.. I started cr"
"Emily was one of my two roommates at MSSD in the short three months time that I was there. On my last night there, before being sent home, she gave a small book with her personal note to me. Her note was very encouraging, kept my hopes up. I will always remember her because of how funny and understanding in my own hard times. I am so glad to have known her for a time."
"It is so hard to write something because I don't want to say goodbye. But I know we must let you go, let you be free, free of earthly struggles and complications. I'll never forget your smile, your intellect and your compassion for others. The love between you and our family was always there, strong both directions and will always be so."
"Its amazing to see all these wonderful memories of Emily! I will always remember her sharing books with me and vice versa. Each Christmas, it was certain that we had gotten books for each other. In particular, I will joyfully recall the xmas she gave me the entire Chronicles of Narnia. At the time, I thought I was too old for those books; how wrong I was. Thank you Emily! Love, Cole"
"I shared many good times and deep conversations with Emily. She turned me on to sign language and a world of literature. How her laughter would fill up the room! I felt such joy after she taught us enough sign language to fumble though our first conversations without words. Good times."
"All too soon gone, Emily. But, we will always have the memories of the bright, engaging girl we knew. Your free spirit is truly free now. Our thoughts and condolences are with all the family."
"I am so shocked and saddened to hear of Emily's passing. During my years at MSSD with her, I remember her so fondly and loved her outgoing and fiercely independent and creative personality. I will always remember one of her poems she wrote at the time, it was simple: "I am I". You will be missed, Emily."
"I was Emily's 6th grade teacher at Prairie Creek. She was her own person even back then. She challenged me to be a better teacher by her probing questions, her wit and her sense of humor. Emily had a smile that would light up the room, when she'd let you see it. We had a very special relationship that year. I will never forget her. My prayers are with the family."
""Emily had such a spirit of enthusiasm for life! Always ready for the next Quest! I did not know her as well as others had the opportunity to know her, but anyone could tell that she was an inspiration to all that met her. My heart goes out to her family and all those that loved Emily. Emily, you will be missed!"
"Our Clarke sister, Emily , you were one of a kind! She had always smile and talked socially! I will missed you Emily! I remembered you had borrowed my bathingsuit so that you could had fun at ramin and Karmin ' fun party for all of us! Great memories! Never forgotten! Clarke sister"
"Dearest Emily, I am so fortunate to have known you when we were young and fearless. We raced faster than the horses and soared higher than the stars. Nothing could have stopped us. I don't think anyone understood you as well as many of us Clarke alumni did when we knew you at your very best. Thank you for sharing your beautiful, raw gift with us and for that I will never forget you. xx"
"I think back to the memories of you, like our house in Colorado Springs or the Rockies games we were so lucky to attend. A time now owned by history, my heart is filled with grim sadness but then again is filled by gratitude. Thank you for the found memories, we love you and you will be dearly missed!"
"Emily.. you will be missed by many... Just thinking about the good times we all had together... love ya... Miss your smile..."
"From the time she was a baby, Emily was curious, spontaneous, and one of the smartest people I have ever known. That spirit may change form, but she sure won't be stopped! God bless you, Emily."
"I remember Emily as fearless, funny, tough, infuriating, and intelligent. In our teens, she shared many stories and jokes with me. I will remember her face laughing in stitches & the unique way she wrote inside cards. Massachusetts, Colorado & DC adventures. I admired her gumption and cannot believe she is gone. Quicker than a ray of light she's flying. My condolences to Emily's family."
"You were the most daring and adventurous person I have ever met. When u 1st came to Clarke, I was the 1st and last person they put you with to be roommates. I must say it was the most 2 interesting yrs of my life. R.I.P Emily. I will never forget our late night convos. God bless. Class of 1990"
"It is with a heavy heart that I am writing. I well remember Emily in my classroom at Clarke. She was indeed a free spirit, even then; but she was delightful and so inquisitive. She had such a zest for life & I always felt there was nothing she couldn't accomplish if she set her mind to it. I shall always have such fond memories of Em... her big smile, her intensity, & her friendship."
"Gosh I cannot believe our Clarke sister had passed. We were hoping to see her again in next reunion but no. :( She was wonderful lady but yes stubborn, all of the words Ron described about her. We'll miss you Emily!"
"Ron, although I never met Emily, I can tell from the pictures that she was a loving person who cared for and loved her family and her pups. Our hearts and our prayers go out to you and your family."
"Emily you had the sweetest smile, I will never forget you and how you loved that red baseball cap. Till we meet again
Your neighbor and friend."
"So many years ago, Emily's parents took us along to fetch her at her gymnastics class. We watched her for a few minutes -- so lovely and delicate and determined. That will forever be our memory of Emily. Bee and Kent"
"I never forget that moment with her. You will be sorely missed forever and miss you. Wish I could see you once again. I will see you up there later My tears r filling up in my eyes — feeling sad."
"Sighs, I just found out that Emily Muns passed away. I remembered her very much when she came to MSSD on very first day of NSO and I was peer advisor. I was helping her because she didn't know nothing about sign language but she was oral. Lucky for me, I was able to talk with her. I was guiding her from that day to end day of NSO. I encouraged her and finally she made new friends--"
"My sincerest sympathy to Emily's family and friends. Too young."
"I remember Emily well, a free spirit indeed! She was one of my first students at Gallaudet (Spanish). Vaya con Dios, Emily."
"Emily had such a free spirit! I admired that about her so much! Iwill miss her every day, my much loved daughter!"
Have a suggestion for us?
