In Memory of a Brave Little Girl

This post is dedicated to Little Miss Emily, who came into this world far too soon and who left us all far too early.

Emily was a strong, determined little girl: she had so much going against her---yet she fought on so hard, so bravely. Her fight was a long one, and a good one. She proved so much more resilient than anyone had thought such a tiny little girl could be, and, through her fight and her bravery, she taught us so much.

Tonight, as I read her father's final posts about his little girl and the fight that she ultimately lost, I wept. I will never forget Little Miss Emily and her resilient spirit.

May Little Miss Emily rest in peace and may her parents find solace in this time of loss and grief.
