In Memory of
Emma Catherine Ringrose
March 23, 2000- November 19, 2005
“A little star that gently shines,
A star that’s free from pain,
Held gently in God’s loving arms,
Until we meet again”
On this 15th Anniversary of her passing, we can be left with nothing greater than the treasured memories of our beautiful Emma who’s death, at the young age of 5, touched many lives in many ways.
Emma is remembered for her kind soul, gentle smile, and loving heart. She enjoyed gymnastics, dancing, singing, soccer and playing with her sisters, cousins and friends.
We are Blessed for the 5 years that she enriched our lives with silly songs, funny faces, and most of all, kindness, love and happiness. Her tragic death was crushing and paralyzing. It was faith, family and community that carried us through our lowest times, and helped us to grow and move forward with our lives. Knowing and feeling her spirit is with us, gave us hope for the future, courage to feel, the strength to heal, and serenity to find peace and
experience joy again.
As the years go on, there is not a day that we don’t ache to have Emma here with us; she is, and always will be deeply missed. Emma would be 20 years old now and we often wonder what her ambitions would be? Special anniversaries and occasions are particularly difficult, but among the many emotions, time did bring peace.
We remain humbled and forever grateful for the ongoing prayers, and remembrances that keep Emma’s memory very much alive. The overwhelming community support will always be remembered, and never forgotten.
With heartfelt thanks,
