Tuesday, March 3

Emilee was given a morphine pump accessed through her port on Monday night. Members of the family press the pump every 20 minutes round the clock to administer pain relief. The hospice care nurse and doctor do not think she will be with us much longer -just a day or so.

Thank you again for your prayers and sweet messages posted. Lots of emotions are going around at this "fever pitch" moment of transition watching beloved Emilee pass from this life to the next. Your words in e-mails and comments keep us spiritually grounded and they are appreciated. -Jennie Kilstrom

Emilee,
You are the perfect example of the saying,
"lift where you stand."
You have truly done that. Thank you.
Our prayers are with you and your family.

Thanks for letting us all know the latest on Emilee's condition. We have been praying around the clock for her peace and comfort and for all of those who surround her at this time. I was always comforted by the saying "Earth has no sorrow that heaven cannot heal" after my dad passed away. We are so grateful for our dear sweet Emilee! We love you all!

Emilee passed away this morning at about 8 AM. Please check the blog for funeral details, as they become available.

Rob and I are so sorry to hear that Emilee has passed away but are pleased she is now pain free. Somehow I think the mourning part was done during the last few weeks as Emilee suffered and now there will be a sense of relief for her within the family. Our prayers are for you all; may you all find peace. To Bonnie, please don't lose touch!! Love Ruth (UK)
