I had the pleasure of taking care of Emily. It was always a joy seeing her smile when we would show her pictures of cats and dogs, as she let me know she was a lover of animals. She loved her family very much and it was also heartwarming to hear her say great things about the people she loved and adored in her life. She will be greatly missed.
