These twin neighborhood labs were loyal friends to Emily, escorting her to and from her bus stop every school day. Our neighbors told us that, while Emily was in the hospital those last 6 weeks, these dogs stayed on our deck and porch. When we returned home, they were there to greet us. They miss Emily, too.

This is the tribute stone for Emily's grave. It says, "I luh you merry, merry much," because that is how Emily said, "I love you." During the years before Emily started verbalizing, Sonja prayed that Emily would someday be able to say "I love you" back to us. When that prayer was answered, it brought much joy to our whole family. (The picture on the stone has spaghetti sauce around her mouth. We like that because she almost always had it there!!!)
