    Dear family, there are no words. I can’t begin to express my sadness for you. She was such a little doll!

    Emily was an intelligent, expressive, happy, loving, caring, strong , patient, beautiful, wonderful friend , dog walker to Kobe and friend, and well adjusted with amazing coping skills beyond her 8 years on this earth. We are privileged to be her and her families neighbors. I personally will miss our talks and her animated personality walking Kobe & Chloe. I adored her . Emily was a blessing ang gift to have known her and be part of her life. There will never be enough words or any words to express our sympathies , my heart is broken. I do want to thank Arien And Chris for raising this angelic child and letting me part of her life, I loved her and will greatly miss Emily.

    The earth stood still…it stopped its rotation for a split second on Friday, May 8th so angels could come down from heaven to bring home a very special little girl everyone knows and loves as Emily M Collaros. Daughter, sister, grand daughter, niece and friend. She was greeted by all loved ones who have gone before her.
    With a heavy heart our sincere condolences go out to you and your family during this difficult time. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.

    I met you once briefly but your story will never leave my memory. I did not meet your daughter but she is so beautiful. Heaven is more beautiful because of her. All of my friends and family are saying our prayers for your family. There are no words…..

    I loved talking with Emily on the way out to recess (I am one of the guards for the kids). She was always up beat and positive about everything. She made me smile with her beautiful grace and attitude. She will be missed greatly but never forgotten.

    My heart breaks for your loss and I pray for your family the strength to continue and go forward. Through Gods grace.
    Love the Gaughan Family

    I don’t know you. I was pulling onto Ridge Rd from Sittoos across the street from the church when I was overwhelmed with a mix of sadness and joy. Somehow I felt the loss of your daughter, the pain of so many there. And yet there was a sense of joy, of peace. I cannot explain it other than to believe your angel was there. I’ve seen so many funerals there over the years and have never felt this way, a need to tell you, I felt her there. I know you will forever feel her love. She touched my heart from heaven.

    To the Collaros family, I’m very sorry for your loss. No matter how much time passes we still feel the loss of our loved ones and view death as God does, an enemy. (1 Corinthians 15:26) May you find comfort and strength in His promise at Revelation 21:3,4 that shows soon there will be no more death, and we can see our loved ones again. Please accept my deepest condolences.
