THE STORY:

Yesterday Heaven gained the most beautiful Angel I have ever known, Emma Rose Hensel. Emma, a blue eyed BABY full of life lost her fight to DIPG, a horrific brain tumor. A baby, why? No chance to live a life yet, to have a first kiss. It does make me mad and sick. However... Now is the time, to be *EMMA STRONG*. Emma fought until the end to stay here on earth with her family. Emma passed away in the arms of myself and Jay. I held my baby in my arms until she had to be taken to the hospital. As a family, Emma included (in her heart we knew what she would have wanted) we gave the gift of Hope for the Future. Emma's tumor, brain, and spinal cord was donated as a gift to St Jude's Research Hospital last evening around 6 pm. Even in spirit EMMA CONTINUES TO FIGHT, We continue to be *Emma Strong*. I feel more than blessed to be able to attend the benefits in her honor, Emma deserves to be celebrated and she would want awarness MADE KNOWN TO ALL. I am working on establishing a foundation in her honor to CONTINUE THE FIGHT, TO REMAIN *EMMA STRONG*. The strength in Emma was devine, she continued to fight against all odds. Emma knew nothing but love and happiness. Emma had the most amazing father here on Earth.Emma was loved on by her sister until the end. I know my mother was there with open arms to meet her grandbaby. Emma is up in Heaven smiling down on all of us, for she is no longer "trapped in her body". Emma is in the Arms of God. I miss her more than words can ever portray. Emma has been my little mini me for 3 years. I can not imagine life without her beautiful smile and little naked butt running down the hall. When her body continued to fail her, she continued to fight. Emma has taught me more in the past months about what it means to sincerely love, to be loved, and to let God hold me when I can not stand. I scream out, but I also look up. I know I will never understand why a BABY was taken from this earth. So, I will not try to understand. I will push on and make plans for a celebration of Emma's Life, of Her FIGHT. We will be bringing our baby home and be holding a service. Plans are underway. Please break out your Emma Shirts and bands/wear purple. Yes we mourn, but we celebrate the joy this little girl has brought us all. I have been blessed to know her, to be able to call her mine for the past 3 years. In her little time here on Earth Emma has changed the workd. We celebrate how courageous she was. "TO KNOW EMMA IS TO KNOW GOD" My heart pours out to all that mourn with us and we love each and everyone who has fought by ourside. The fight is not over! ~With Love and a Broken Heart, Teal
