Emma loved being a girl – hair, makeup, dressing up, painting her nails all the colors she loved so much, tanning on the trampoline and especially shopping. She loved the camera, pictures with her family and friends, giraffes and kittens, PB &J’s, popcorn, ice cream and Pinterest.

Em cherished her friends and seldom met a stranger.
