Chris and Tess Skipper had been busy planning Christmas and their oldest daughter's first birthday. Never could they have imagined they would be quickly planning a party while traveling back and forth to visit her baby sister in a neonatal intensive care unit over an hour away (depending on the ferry line). Now while most of the country is preparing for Christmas festivities, the Skipper family is planning the funeral for their second born daughter, Emma Jay. Due to complications Emma was born on December 4th, just short of 24 weeks gestation, weighing 1 lb. 1 oz and 11 inches long. Emma fought with all she had for 2 weeks and gained her wings on December 19, 2015. This GoFundMe account is to help the young family with hospital and funeral expenses. We also ask that if you cannot donate you keep the entire Skipper family in your thoughts and prayers.
