On January 11, 2018 Emily passed away unexpectedly at the young age of 30. Emily had been battling diabetes most of her life. She was recently dealing with some setbacks and Emily and her almost 3-year-old daughter Charlotte were living with Emily's mother at the time of her passing. An unfortunate fact now is that Charlotte will go through life with the only "memories" of her mother being from stories told by family and friends.
Emily was a loving free spirit who was always striving to remind others to leave the world a better place. She loved her daughter Charlotte more than life itself and we all know she always wanted the best for her! Emily loved music and you could see the spirit of the song flow through her soul.
The purpose of this campaign is to build a memorial fund in Emily's honor that can help offset funeral expenses while also helping create some certainty for her daughter's future during these uncertain times. These funds will go towards building Charlotte's future in her mother's honor including creating a college fund. Charlotte's Grandma, Mary Ann and Great Uncle Jeremy will be in charge of the funds to make sure they are put to their highest and best use for this little girl who now has to grow up without her mother.
We plead with you all to help in any way you can! Even the smallest of donations will make the world of difference to Charlotte and her future.
I thank you, our family thanks you, and Charlotte thanks you for your help during this difficult time!
