Emily

Emily with Great Nephew taken Spring of 05

All of you have seen the "In Memory of" on mine and Pat's blog. Today is the 3rd anniversary of Emily's disappearance. Her body was found on Jan. 7, 2006. I myself believe that today is the actual day of death. Since we know, no more today then we did 3 years ago, there can be no closure for her family and friends. Click on the link and Read more about her murder on either my blog or Pat's. There is also a reward set up for information. The more people that knows about this, the more chance that some day someone will come forward with important information. Please circulate it to your friends. Below is a copy of a post I made on a Virtual Memorial page. I may have already posted this, but excuse me if I did. We are still waiting for answers. Please keep her family and friends in your prayers and thoughts. They need closure and Emily deserves justice. Below the memorial is a picture of her on the right and her sister Dee on the left. Happier Days

Emily G. Anderson8 Jul 1956-29 Dec 2005

This is in memory of my very special friend Emily.
Emily went missing on December 29, 2005. Her body found on Jan. 7, 2006. But we are not sure of the actual date of her death. She had been shot multiple times.
Unfortunately, I only had her in my life for 5 years. But feel tremendously blessed with those years.
Those of us that Emily left behind will find it hard to meet another someone who will touch our lives in the way that she did. She loved everyone, for what she saw in them, and made us feel as if she was honored to be in our presence. When she walked in to the room, it would light up, just from her smile, she wouldn't have to speak, her smile is all you needed. She always put you first, always making you feel special. Bette Midler's song "Wind Beneath My Wings" describes the kind of person she was.
Her values were evident for all to see. She valued faith in the Lord, and loyalty to her family and friends. Emily loved to sing in the choir at her church.
Emily's legacy was not riches, possessions, or worldly goods of any kind. It is the way she lived and loved, the lives she touched, the promises she kept. Her legacy is the kind of friend she was.
I miss you Emily, and you now are the victor,not the victim. You are home, and your search is over.
I'll never forget you

How well I remember those days..It is so hard to believe that she has been gone this long and no clue to the murderer.

Emily, her family, and friends will be in my prayers and thoughts today. You were lucky to have had a friend like that. It sounds like she knew what was important to her and how to enjoy life. She'll always be with you...in your heart...and watching over you from up above! (Eventually, justice will be served and the person responsible for her death will get what is deserved. In the meantime, always focus on the happier times!)

Nice post, great pictures and memories! It really is hard to believe Em's been gone for three years, but she will always be with us in spirit.

Thank you so much for posting the pics of Emily. I know that we all miss her so very much. I dread this particular day every year since her death. It's almost over for this year - just a few more minutes. Then, I can breathe until January 7 rolls around. Emily loved you and Pat and spoke of you often. I know that she is watching over us and probably not just smiling, but snorting that laugh of hers and calling me a "big baby" for crying right now. That was one of her favorite names for me!
