In Loving Memory of Emma Lou Paterno

The very beautiful and special Emma Lou Paterno

Just yesterday we lost our beautiful Emma Lou to cancer.

Emma was an angel on earth to many people. She loved children. Em was known as the mayor of Lucena (the block she lived on). All the babies on our block love Emma and she loves them. Emma had a ton of love to give. She gave love to everyone she met. However she loved us the most. Emma's heart lay with us, her family. She would do anything for us. In fact she gave me the opportunity to say goodbye to her.

I work in the City and my mom called to say that Emma wasn't doing well. I wasn't able to leave work until 5. Emma held on until my sister and I got home from work. The doctors were amazed that she was still able to hold on because she was bleeding very badly internally, from the cancer. Emma's love for us gave her the strength to hold on.

Emma's love for us gave and gives us strength. She had a special bond with every person in this house. Emma loved each one of us in her own way. Emma is my sister. She is part of me and my family. We were blessed to have her in our lives. And I would like to believe that Emma was sent to us because she was a very sick puppy, but that never mattered to us. We worked through the issues and Emma came out on top.

Emma was an angel here and had to fly home! Sleep well my girl. I will see you again, I promise!
