Celebration of Life for Bailey Emory

My nephew, Bailey, lost his life in a tragic accident April 24th 2019.  He was only 16 years old. He leaves behind family and  friends he cared for deeply.  

Bailey was full of dreams and aspirations. He would speak of the numerous colleges he would like to attend, and what sports he would try to excel at next. Bailey also had a talent for cooking, and enjoyed demonstrating his skills to friends and family.

He was one of the strongest young men I have ever had the pleasure to know.  In October of 2015, Bailey's mother Julie was killed by a drunk driver.  He showed a maturity while grieving that is rare for someone of his young age, and was resolute to make his mom proud. I know he is with her now, and like the rest of us, she is very proud of the young man he was.

Bailey's passing is both heart breaking and sudden.  This Go Fund Me fundraiser is being used to help cover Bailey's funeral and memorial costs.  All money donated will be used for that purpose.  His father, Takashi, will be handling the final arrangements and I am assisting him.  We will need funds soon, and will post updates when we have firm dates for services.  

Any amount donated is appreciated.   Thank you for taking the time to consider helping with these final costs.
