To Andrew and Jenn, you were chosen by God to have Emma for 7 years. You were chosen because God knew you would give Emma the love and support she need for these 7 short years. The prove is in Emma's personality and how she managed to touch so many people with her beautiful smile, caring, sense of humor and the smarts in Math (She might of gotten from me LOL). Yes she leaves us with a heavy heart, but also with her warm and beauty heart!! May God give you the strength to walk you through this time. God Bless you! My Condolences and my love!!!
Aunt Mary Lou Garcia Rios.

You do not know me. Yet my heart hurts as I read about this beautiful angel that people had the privilege of knowing. Without anyone knowing, she was Angel Emma on earth. You were blessed with 7 years of her. Now you have wonderful memories of her to hold onto forever. Her silliness, funny, smart comments, her loving ways with you and much more. You were lucky enough to have memories of her that will last a lifetime. I pray that your faith will help you to understand why things happen the way they do. I pray that God will wrap you both and give you comfort and love to help each other to accept her lost. Cry when you must it will help you to carry on. For now you know you have an angel in heaven looking out for her parents. My sincere condolences to all of you who contribute to her happiness

Posted by Stella Saldana - Livermore, CA   April 26, 2020

The Sisters at St. John Bosco School cried at the news of little Emma's passing! We placed her picture in the yearbook next to the tabernacle in our chapel, where it was close to Jesus. The next day, our Mass was offered for Emma, and for her parents and sister. We have been sharing our memories of Emma, a beautiful, well-mannered and smiling little girl, always ready to cooperate in the activities at hand. She attended our school and our summer camp. Her group leaders and counsellors at camp loved her. Our hearts are so very close to her parents and little sister at this time. Please feel the strong support of our prayers and our love. May you feel the loving arms of Jesus and Mary holding you in your deep sorrow. Little sweet Emma, keep smiling at us from heaven!
