Many people have asked over the last several days what is our plan for a memorial service for Emily. Ron and I have decided to not have a public memorial for Emily. During the last hour of Emily's life Ron and I were with her and got to say goodbye and feel that we have had the closure that we needed as a family and as a couple. While we are not planning on having a memorial there are several things that we are doing to remember her and make sure that Emily is never forgotten. The hospital staff was wonderful in making sure that we had the time to spend with Emily, as well as taking many pictures of her with us, so we will always have that memory. In the future I will post a few pictures of Emily.
We understand that many of you, our family and friends, would like to have a physical way to express your love and support for us and to have a way of remembering Emily. If this is something that you would like to do, we ask that you make a donation in memory Emily Faith to the March of Dimes.
Even though Emily was only alive for a short time, the medical staff used so many life saving measures to keep our little girl alive and many of these advances would not have even been possible several years ago. Because of the donations of people over the years to March of Dimes there have been so many advancements in the care of premature babies as well as in prolonging pregnancy.
You can visit the March of Dimes website to find out more about what they do and how that money is used or you can click here to be taken directly to the donation page of March of Dimes.
We are so thankful for each one of you who have been praying for us in the past week.
