Celebration of Life/Funeral Costs

As many of you well know Emma has had long time struggles with her health, disabilities, and illnesses. Many of her conditions have begun to catch up with her in the past year and with heavy hearts we will be welcoming hospice into our home within the next 2 months. Emma, even when sick or in pain, has always been the most amazing example of how strong and joyous one can be in the midst of physical hardship. Emma loves people, she loves being loved on and talked to and she radiates when we do, so in lieu of a funeral service we have decided to throw Emma a Celebration of Life Party for friends and family to celebrate her perserverance, and show her how much she is loved while she is still with us!!! As she is never sad, we believe this is what Emma would prefer instead of the sadness that looms within a funeral service. We are going to show her what a light she as been as a daughter, a sister, a granddaughter, great granddaughter and a friend!! With that being said, her end of life costs will be great and will mount quickly. Any amount received is a huge help and will go towards her end of life costs and her celebration party. Thank you so much to all who have been a part of Emma's journey. From the bottom of our hearts we thank you ❤ -Lita, Jared, Emma, Olivia, Gene, and Linda
