Could someone please forward this poem I wrote in Emily's memory on to her family? Thanks! Julie Roth Aurora, CO

Hold Them Near, Hold Them Dear

When they are in your womb, you have them near, you hold them
dear.
When they are born and put in your arms you hold them near
and hold them dear.
Next thing you know its first day of school, you hold them
near and hold them dear.
Time goes on - you try to hold them near and hold them dear but
they are growing up. They dont realize how short life can
be.
Next you know it is graduation time - you hold them near and
hold them dear.
But what of the ones who's life is taken early - who dont get
to reach these milestones?
You still hold them near - in your heart - and hold them dear
- they never leave your mind or your life because you
are holding their spirit near and your are holding their memory
dear.

Take the time to hold those closest to you near and dear.
In memory of Emily and all of those other lives that have left
us so young.

Thank you...I have an 18 year old son who just graduated from Grandview High School (thank you God!) and when I see Emily's picture I think of all of his friends that I have gotten to know and enjoy and it breaks my heart for her family - losing her and also for the other victims!! I have been so moved by everything I have seen on tv that I just had to sit and write this down.

God Bless!!!
Julie
