    Stephanie, Jeff and Taylor, I am very sorry for the loss of your Daughter and Step sister. the memories you have shared with us will always be with you and with us all. She was the light of your life in a sea of darkness. May she look down on you right now as a guardian Angel to walk with you till you meet once again.

    Such a lovely young lady taken far too early. My heart goes out to Stephanie Horstman and to Emily’s friends who I know have an empty spot from her passing. Love and hugs to all!!

    I was truly shocked when I heard of Emily’s passing. Losing your child is something a parent should never have to experience. I’m so sorry Stephanie. Peace be with you.

    My deepest sympathies to Stephanie and her family. One should never have to bury their own child. My heart is with you. I never met her but the way you spoke of her through the years made her spirit so alive. Her soul now flies free and with peace. All my love.

    Emily and I grew up on the same street together. When I needed someone to talk to or run to, I went to her. We shared a lot of pain and hurt from different aspects of our life together and she was the most real friend I’ve ever had. She was creative and goofy. She would recite her raps she wrote and we had the craziest adventures. I had a lot of “first” experiences with her. She was like a sister and I never thought it would go down like this. I was rooting for her the whole time and tried helping her out by just being someone she could talk to. I am heartbroken that I’ll never get to laugh with her again. I love you Em. I hope your soul can finally Rest In Peace. You blossomed into a beautiful, intelligent woman. I miss you so much.
