    I'm so sorry she has passed. She always had a smile on her face and was very sweet and kind. A good natured person that was easy to be around and be friends with. - I hope to see you again someday dear Emily and see your beautiful smile.

    I had no words when I got the phone call. I had to go back some years. I thought of all the times you had to babysit me. Each time I saw you always had a smile and said there go my baby. I will miss you and we will see each other again.

    Aunt Shinel, after watching you the last weeks before, I know that you are resting peacefully in the Lord now. You fought hard and long, even in the end you still did not give up. You taught so many lessons of unconditional love, you will be greatly missed in our family. I love you so much and although I am hurting right now, I am glad that God saw fit to take you out of your pain. I thank God for sharing you with me and I thank you for loving me and helping me and always encouraging me. I am going to miss our conversations but I have so many great memories to think back on. Always in my heart.

    God has gained an amazing angel. Emily was a sweet and kind soul. Always smiling and never letting lifes situations get the best of her. As you take this time to grieve, I pray you find peace in knowing she is a better place and will continue to shine her light down on each and every one of you. We, the Moore Family, send our condolences and may God give you strength and comfort in your time of need.
