I had an email from Emily’s (Mz. Em) friend, Michelle, last night that our dear, sweet friend, Em, had passed away yesterday at home.
I’ve spent the entire night trying to come to grips with this, and I can’t. I know Em had a lot of things going on that were very hard for her, but she had just come off a week’s trip to visit her friend, Michelle, in NV and seemed to be doing OK when last she wrote to me, which was after she arrived back home.
When I know more I will write more, but not now. I am hurting too much now for writing (see my most recent Comment).
Michelle wanted Emily’s friends to know about their time spent together at her place in Nevada and wrote the following:
“…My eyes are swollen almost shut this morning and I keep shaking my head… How we laughed until we cried one night over a silly movie! How she hung on to my precious Lancelot (dog) the whole time she was here. How she giggled when she fed my parents’ horses cookies, looking at me saying “How’d I do?” They are beside themselves too.
“I want all of her friends to know what a wonderful experience she had here. I wish I knew how to reach them.
“I wish I had taken pictures.
“I wish I could reach out and hug you. She loved you so.”
In loving memory of Emily F – and may she find some peace wherever she is now.
It’s in every one of us to be wise,
Find your heart, open up both your eyes.
We can all know every thing without ever knowing why.
It’s in every one of us, by and bye.
