   Emily could always capture you with her impish smile and sweet spirit. She had a generous heart and creative soul. Emily could quickly illuminate a room with her brilliance and quick wit.
   "She was beautiful, but not like those girls in the magazines. She was beautiful, for the way she thought. She was beautiful for the sparkle in her eyes when she talked about something she loved. She was beautiful, for her ability to make other people smile, even if she was sad. No, she wasn't beautiful for something as temporary as her looks. She was beautiful, deep down in her soul." -F.Scott Fitzgerald.
