To our precious daughter Emily...
September 21, 1994
what a gift you were
on that day to your
Mom and Dad
this is what you were like when
Grandma Margaret lost her battle
You were a delite!
You still are.
You'll always be Daddy's girl!
You loved to be with him
when you were little
were his shadow.
You did karate with him,
you helped him fix things,
you were always by his side.
Thankfully for me...
you also were a Mommy's girl.
You were willing to let me play dress up with you.
Take tons of photos.
Have tea parties...
and have lots of fun.
You adored ponies...
you adored horses way to big for a five year old.
You adored all animals.
Merry go rounds were your favorite!
Never could ride just one time,
but as many as the pocket book would allow.
MOA merry go round was your all time favorite.
A photo shot for Christmas cards took way too long,
but you were a delite
joyful as always.
You loved being in the water...
You love guns!
Shooting rabbits and snakes at the cabin
has become a Father/Daughter memory.
You loved to be in the boat when you were young.
You have always loved vacations!
Dressing up for Halloween.
always a favorite of yours...
Born a kitten lover...
...you were a lover of books
Santa was always your friend.
You could never get enough of stuffed animals and farm toys.
a lover of apples...
always a delightful beautiful smile on your face...
You were even a cool dude on our motorcycles when you were young.
lover of family events...
such as many cousins weddings.
Softball and soccer were your choice of sports.
a delight to watch on the field playing...
you make our family complete...
lover of family events.
