I never met Emily but I was lucky enough to hear her voice and laugh on the phone one day. We bonded over her mother Glenna, who had left her phone at my house. I am sure Emily thought I was crazy when I reached out over Facebook and asked for her mother’s address. She gladly gave it to me and giggles when I suggested her mother was always leaving something at my house. I knew right then that we when we did meet in person, we would hit it off and become best of friends. My heart goes out to you and your whole family for the loss of such a sweetheart. -Jessica
Glenna, Keitha, and family There are no words that I can say to comfort you really during this time of loss. Emily’s sudden and tragic death is simply not the natural progression of life for your family. Emily was pure sweetness and it was always a pleasure and joy to be I. Her presence. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. Love, Amy
Glenna and Family So thankful I got to know Emily through my friendship with Kim. She had a smile that would light up a room. Her laughter was contagious and her love for others was amazing. I pray that you can find peace and comfort in the days to come. God bless you all. Beth Parker Hamilton

I went to Truett with Emily and spent lots of time hanging with her in the dorm. She was one of the happiest people and I was lucky to call her friend. She will be missed. My condolences to the family.
She was always sweet and had the best smile. I loved her spirit. Continue to watch over my dear friend Glenna. Rest easy sweetie until we meet again❤️❤️❤️
