A letter to Emma

Dear Emma,
I met you
While you were sleeping
When your mind was quiet
And your eyes were resting
And your heart was beating in rhythm with your breaths.
I combed your hair,
I cleansed your skin.
I listened to stories about you-
Of laughter, of music, of art.
And a style very much your own.
I gazed at pictures of you- a child, a teen.
I saw your victimization by a ruthless enemy.
And I will witness your Resurrection-
Running into the arms of your mother, father and brother.
Who will fill you in on how the story ended.
How the enemy was caught and Judged.
And you will remember the Promises you were taught and believed in before your mind got sick.
You will cheer, dance and laugh.
You will ask what your assignment is, and it will be very Emma- tailored to your strengths and likes and art.
And we will meet again.
And I will hold your face in my hands and say-
“Your Heavenly Father Jehovah missed you. Your Universal Family waited for you.
Now get to IT, Kiddo!”

I am truly and sincerely for your family's pain during this difficult time. I can relate to some of Emma's pain, which is now gone for now....when she awakens it won't even be a memory. Yes, the hope we have is outstanding...but right now: the sting of death hurts badly...more than any of us can imagine with losing a child. It is just around the corner, and we await that day with anticipation. When you see her again, and she runs into your arms, all pain will be gone and only tears of joy will be had. What a day that will be!!!! Until then, please know that you are all in our hearts, prayers, and thoughts for your strength and endurance...the entire family. We love you oh so very much!

Your whole family were our best friends when we moved back to Washington. Always being with all of you everyday was the best. From rushing out to Dutch first thing in the morning, all the endless uno games, nerf gun wars, middle of the night eating & Walmart runs, endless dinners with everyone & much more. You’re a sweet girl with a kind heart.
‘You’ll be with me in paradise’
You are loved by many & we await your arrival in the new system, happy & whole.
“For the hour is coming In which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice & come out to a resurrection of life”. John 5:28,29
We will all see you soon baby girl ❤️

I unfortunately didn't get to know Emma well, but what I did know was obvious to everyone. Emma was kind, her smile and laugh lit up the room. She had a genuine heart and soul, and only wanted the best for everyone. Emma was a bright, beautiful young lady, who deserved infinite happiness - when the New System comes, I look forward to seeing Emma in a world that she deserved to be in, full of happiness and love, where pain will be no more. I pray to our loving God that until then, he remains with Emma's family and takes care of their aching hearts and ease their pain. I look forward to seeing Emma again one day soon <3

Sweet girl

Shared by Lynn Lehr on March 20, 2021
I remember when both our families were new to the Caledonia congregation. We had each others backs. When we met, Emma was a little thing 3 or 4 yrs old if I remember correctly. She would stand in the aisle every song we sang & would dance. It was such a treat for us. Even though both your kids were little, mine loved being with them & babysitting them. They were fond of my two as well. What wonderful memories. I also enjoyed seeing her in her horse gear after helping you with boarding or riding horses. Haha, I remember when we all went out to eat at Charcoal Grill after the meeting & Tim told Emma to eat the cherry & she did. It was a tomato. That was so funny. She didn't even spit it out or make a face, she just at it. Loved having you guys at our house too  for family gatherings with our extended family as well, whether just hanging out or celebrating something. Love you guys so much. We are not there with you physically but in heart & spiritually.  Continued prayers for Tim, Jaci & Detrich. As we continue to endure this system of things, we will have our sweet & funny Emma back real soon. 
Love,
Mitchell, Lynn, Matt & Marie

Im Samantha Miller , I was close with Emma she was like someone I have never met before this spunky caring smart beautiful girl. Emma and I would stay up on the phone together talking about all the plans we had for the future, we would text 24/7 about the most random things but she told me that i was her best friend and she didn't know what she would do without me. now i dont know what i'm doing without her, everyday i miss her bright smile and her proud voice. One time she picked me up from school with her mom and her brother and we were just laughing the whole way and so excited to hang out, when we got to her house we played with the ferrets she showed me around , i even brought my guitar to help teach her how to play. she had all kinds of sheet music she would love to play, now that i have her sheet music i'm going to learn every song so i can still play for her. I am deeply sorry to all of emmas family members and friends we really really lost an amazing girl but shes forever with us in our hearts she would want everyone to be strong for her so thats all i've been trying to do. remember you are never alone , Emma wenz I love you and thank you for all the joy and love you brought to my life
