I am very sorry for your loss. In the days and weeks to come as Emma's family and friends grieve for her, please find solace in a scripture that comforted me during my period of mourning. 1 John 4:9 says "By this the love of God was revealed that in our case, He sent his only begotten son into the world so that we might gain life through him." The hope of the resurrection is truly a gift. May the peace of God be with you.

May God provide strength, compassion and peace of mind during this very difficult time to Emma's family. Our deepest heartfelt sympathy and condolences are extended.
Most Sincerely,
Candida & Samantha
