For 11 years my best friend stood beside me, protected me when the kids were living independently or in college, and my husband was transferred to Europe.
She was there through death of parents, illness of family and helped me rehab after breaking my leg.
She was so intelligent, kind and sweet!!
She was as graceful as an otter swimming in the lake every summer.
She loved playing street hockey with the neighborhood kids and would play ball if she could 24 hours every day.
She NEVER left my side,even when her health was decaying her beautiful body.
Yesterday, I said goodbye to my sweet Emma.
She left an unbelievable impression to everyone that had the privilege of knowing her.
This is a day I knew enviably would arrive, and would the closing of her life cause me to return to an addiction that would normally distract the reality of life. It never crossed my mind..
In memory of my Sweet Emma ~9-20-2017
