Our sweet Emerson Kate went home to be with Jesus on January 19, 2023.  Memorial services will be held at 4:00 P.M. on Thursday, January 26, 2023 at Hillside Christian Church Main Auditorium.  Arrangements are by Boxwell Brothers Funeral Directors, 2800 Paramount Blvd.

Emerson burst into this world on April 4, 2012 in true Emerson fashion.  She made a statement from her first breath.  She was proud of herself for being well over 9 pounds and being the biggest baby in the nursery.  From day one, she had the ability to take up the whole room with her presence.

Every single person who was graced with the privilege of meeting our Emerson, instantly knew that she was audaciously and unapologetically herself.  She left a lasting impression everywhere she went on everyone she met – be that young or old.  She was sweet but spicy.  She was a girl through and through all the while covered in dirt with her hat on backwards.  She lived to be a sister to all children but her greatest joy was being a sister to her siblings.  She loved Jesus, her friends, fishing, volleyball, zipping around on her golf cart, dancing, singing, and above all making people laugh until their sides hurt.

She is survived by an entire fan club here on earth and she had a wonderful welcoming party in heaven.  Emerson is an absolute treasure, and this world is truly a better place because of her.  Emerson’s presence will forever be felt and her sparkle will never be forgotten.

In lieu of flowers, the family kindly suggests that donations be made to Third Strand at http://bit.ly/ThirdStrandDonate

  1. Though I could not be there physically, I was there in spirit. My heart absolutely aches for everyone who loved this sweet and beautiful young lady. I continue to pray for you all to be wrapped in love and comfort. I heard a worship song the other night I had not heard in a while called “The Blessing” and I thought of you all.. a reminder He’s ever present…

    May His presence go before you
    And behind you, and beside you
    All around you, and within you
    He is with you, He is with you
    In the morning, in the evening
    In your coming, and your going
    In your weeping, and rejoicing
    He is for you, He is for you 💗

  6. Emerson was an angel we did not know was walking the earth with us. She is bigger than all of us and now she is with you always. It might be a butterfly you see, a sunset or rise, a rain drop hitting your nose she will always be there all you have to do is look.

    God always has a way.

    I love you all and will be praying for you Chelsea and the whole entire family.

  7. Her light shines in every picture I have ever seen of this sweet baby, just like her mommas. I know that you will continue to carry that light Chelsea. You have always had the ability to light up rooms and I know she got that from you. Keep shinning for this beautiful girl. Know you are loved, prayed for and always have a place to “get away” in the hill country when you need to take a min. Sending hugs and prayers.

  8. Chelsea, my sweet. This has been such a devastating loss. I was there when she was born and I will be there when her earthly body is laid to rest. I will treasure the memories that ‘Em gave us and will miss her terribly. Chelsea I have loved you since you were born. I have love and hugs for your precious family, Joel, Monroe, Knox and baby Ellison . I know this is a loss we can’t explain and our hearts are broken. 🙏🙏🙏

    Fly high sweet angel. You are a Super Hero.

    My deepest sympathy to the family. Hugs and prayers.

  10. Emerson has impacted our lives as she has so many over this last week. I am Devin Kuhn’s mom. When he called to tell me about what happened, through tears he spoke of the love you have for Emerson. We prayed for her and we have prayed for you and the entire family. Our hearts are heartbroken for you. Katie told me about the many lives that were saved due to Emerson’s donations. What a beautiful Angel she is! We will continue to pray for you. God’s blessings and peace for you all your days. In Him, Kay Kuhn
