Last Sunday we lost our little sweet niece Emma. Thanks to some amazing and wonderful friends who watched our kids, Jake and I were both able to fly with Mitchell out to the funeral in Alabama. To be honest with you I cannot believe how healing this funeral was. It was so wonderful. Lynsey made a comment about how the spirit is so strong at a funeral, sometimes even stronger than the temple. As I've thought about that I think maybe it's because everyone is so broken and humble everyone is looking for an answer. About a zillion prayers were said, and everyone is so loving. You could feel Emma there, and Hannah kept saying Emma was there keeping her strong.

Spencer and Hannah are amazing parents. They had the sweetest little girl Emma, who reflected their love for her. I am so sad for our loss. It feels so unfair to lose this 21 month old so suddenly. But Spencer and Hannah gave Emma the best life. Emma was so lucky to have them as her parents because they loved her as much as they could every day of her life. Emma was just too perfect for this world she had to move on before the rest of us. AND she has a whole little clan of friends there already (Audrey, Ethan, Bethany, Caleb, and many more I'm sure). We love and miss you Emma.

I have so many cute photos of Emma, but since I got a new computer I'm having a hard time finding them.


  1. I am always a loss for something to say in such a situation as sweet Emma's. She is a beautiful girl and it sounds like her funeral was very uplifting and sad all at the same time. I can't wait to understand all of Heavenly Father's purpose and plans in our lives, when I ask Him my 20 questions someday.

  2. Beautiful words Kellie. Thank you so much.
