Emma Elizabeth Bealing grew her wings on Sunday, January 4, 2004. Emma was Maureen and Doug Bealing’s baby girl and precious granddaughter to Arthur and Mary Davis as well as Lorna Bealing and Tino Gomez. On February 15, 2002 our lives were forever brightened by the birth of our beautiful blue-eyed angel, Emma. Miss Emma came to us with personality that was larger than life and a vitality that kept us all running, particularly her mom and dad. Emma was an accomplished cupboard-climber, rabbit-feeder, toothbrush-flusher, storyteller, dancer, jumper, and all around mischief-maker, but it will be her ability to inspire laughter and joy that we will never forget. (She was also a very good cousin “bosser-arounder” and lunch date.) Emma and her big brother Harrison shared a love for each other that sometimes resembled a wrestling match of hugs and we know that when Harrison scores the big goals it will be with Emma’s wings at his heels. Emma was a pupil at the Grannie and Grampa Davis Daycare and she will be so sorely missed. It is difficult to express or comprehend how anyone, in such a short time, could touch so many people and change them forever. We have all been better for knowing you Emma, and while we are sad for the loss of your smiley face, we are also so grateful for having had you with us. Emma taught us about Love. Emma will be missed but celebrated by her numerous aunts and uncles, cousins and friends.
