  3. We can remember when the kids came over to visit our doggies. They played with them and brushed and combed them. They also were nice enough to pick up some poppies. Emma really liked being with the doggies.
    RIP Emma and run with all the doggies at the rainbow bridge.

  4. Emmaleigh was a beautiful, kind, caring girl. She was such a great person and I know that she will be watching down on us all. Fly high beautiful girl.

  5. I knew Em for a while. I moved away from Livonia and we grew apart. The day i left Livonia I remember she pinned me against the wall and just hugged me. I love her so much. She is so beautiful and I will never forget her. I’m sorry to all of her family and friends. I love you Emmaleigh. Fly High

  6. Emma has a sweet soul and pure heart. I am without words to express how profoundly my heart goes out to Carl, his children, and family. Her kindness to my son Joshua when he entered middle school, she gave him a hug. She always said hello and smiling. She as a neighbor was a good citizen already. She came to me when someone defaced some reflectors had in my yard and told me who did it and how it was wrong. I will miss her smile, seeing her jumping on the trampoline. You all are in my prayers and thoughts. She was an angel. Much love to everyone who will miss her..She spreaded kindness..and in remembrance to her, I will continue to see her smile and her love you could see in her eyes. Even as a young lady she had a beautiful aura about her. I hope for peace, love and kindness for your family…as she showed it to mine. Thank you for sharing your beautiful daughter with me and my boys; as neighbors. Prayers and thoughts for you all.

  7. Rest in peace baby girl. Thoughts & prayers to the family. God bless you all.
