Emily Grace Longmore, 3, of Monroe Twp., slipped out of our arms and into the arms of her heavenly Father on Nov. 14, 2018, after a courageous 11-month battle against neuroblastoma, a rare form of childhood cancer.
She was born Nov. 28, 2014, in Wilkes-Barre.
Emily was a brave little princess fought with a strength and courage that would rival the most valiant of heroes. Emily never complained throughout her battle. Through six rounds of chemotherapy, four rounds of immunotherapy, two stem-cell transplants and multiple medical procedures and surgery, she always had a smile on her face and joy in her heart.
Emily loved people, and she lived every day to the fullest. During her many hospital stays, Emily loved making friends with her nurses. Her sweet character quickly endeared her to many. When she was enduring something difficult, she would console us by saying, “it’s okay, it’s not your fault.” Though Emily’s time with us was too short, we are so thankful to the Lord for the wonderful blessing of nearly four years with her. She was a shining example of patience, joy, understanding, perseverance and love.
Emily loved animals, the movie “Frozen,” and bacon mac and cheese. She loved playing veterinarian and doctor with her big sister Lily, playing outside with her big brother Ben, taking care of her doggie Maggie and cuddling with mommy and daddy. Though our lives are forever changed, they are richer and forever blessed because of her.
