Emma HasseliusEmma Nicole Hasselius 1/30/03 - 2/18/03

Lynn, Andrew, Adam, and I would like to thank everyone for all their support during the most difficult time of our lives. Our hearts are heavy with sadness and pain as only time will tell if we can get through a complete day without crying. Little Emma was with us but a short time, but she taught us all a new perspective on life and how not to take each day for granted. The saying "Tomorrow is promised to no one" has true meaning in our lives now, as we all wish for just one more day with Emma. We never got to see Emma crawl, or play, or run. We never got to feel Emma snuggle, or sleep on our shoulder, or give us a hug. We never got to hear Emma laugh, or sing, or say "I love you." But, we did have 19 days with our Emma where she taught us to fight. She taught us to love. And she taught us nothing is as important as family, friends, and relationships, because without those we have nothing. It is our family and friends that got us through it all and for that we are forever grateful! Emma is not only our little angel, but she is yours too. Thank you.
