I’m a friend of Emi from Buckeye, I played volleyball and had a lot of classes with her. She was such a bright character. Such a great person. When I heard the news it was such a shock. I couldnt believe what I heard.
I don’t want to go on with sad thoughts. Emi was so smart, nice, fun and just such a great person. I just wanted to say how much I adored Emi, she will be missed. I will be praying for her and her family.

Shannon & Kara Byerly - Nov 28, 2009

Shannon met Stephanie while teaching and coaching volleyball together at Cardington-Lincoln School. We had the privilege to meet Emi at several volleyball tournaments Stephanie and Shannon played in together. While Emi was only 8 or 9 years old at the time, she was clearly the spark and light of the family. We remember what a sweetheart she was and just a riot to be around, even at such a young age. Stephanie, our thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family during such a difficult time. We are so sorry for your loss!

Carol (Cole) Minehart - Nov 28, 2009

Chris, you may not remember me, but I also graduated from BC with your sister Kathy. We too have lost a daughter (Christina)to a car accident 8 years ago. She was 15. I am so sorry for the pain you are going through now. We live in Upper Sandusky. Two people have told me of your loss this week. You are and will be in my prayers. We lead a support group for bereaved parents (The Compassionate Friends), which has been very helpful in our healing. My husband and I are here to help if we can. You are not alone. Your daughter sounds like such a wonderful girl. God has her safe in His keeping now, until you meet again. -Carol

Allysha Wells - Nov 28, 2009

To Emi’s family and friends,
When I heard the news of Emi’s death, I was absolutely shocked. I was a 2008 graduate from Riverdale High School and have played against Emi in volleyball and basketball since 7th grade. The Riverdale community has had many a loss this year and we all know how hard it is to go through such a shocking loss. I am sending my deepest condolences and praying for your strength during this difficult time. God bless you all, and I am truly sorry for your loss.

Traci Seibert - Nov 28, 2009

I cannot imagine the devastation. We lost Stephies dad and my husband right around this time of year 8 years ago. Reading all the scripts, it is truly clear that Emi was a fine outstanding young lady and beautiful at that. You have to be proud that she was a 2nd year nursing student. As far as I am concerned, Emi was everybodys girl. God bless you and keep you for all the days forward.

Lisa (Zaebst) Brown - Nov 28, 2009

My deapest sympathy to the family…I have known you for so long, but never knew Emi…i graduated with Shelli, knew Claire, and of course Chris in doing hair…I love you all and cant even imagine the heartache. I know Emi was a beautiful young lady and full of life. God calls us when He feels he has to….No one will ever understand why…..Just understand there’s a reason why……
Love you all,

Phil, Colleen Kimmet & Elijah Miller - Nov 27, 2009

I am so sorry for the loss of a beautiful angel. She was wonderful in many aspects. There were days she stood up for me including when we went to Kalahari, I will never forget that day Emi. Emi you were like my sister, I wish you were here so I could have spent more of the time with you. I won’t forget you for everything, you having the BIG and purest heart, wonderful personality, being so down to earth, and so much more sweetie. I remember going to basketball practice and you and I were so competitive toward each other. I wish those days were still here. I miss you so much and love you with all my heart. I know that you are an angel sent from God, watching over all of us. There will not be a day without thinking of you. You have done so many wonderful things for me and others Emi.

Our deepest sympathies go out to your entire family and friends. Losing a member of the family is very difficult especially when it is a child (young adult).

From my kitchen window this morning, I see Mr. Secor preparing for Emi’s funeral. This leaves me paralyzed with grief this morning for your family. Emi was wonderful young lady. Seeing her at Mass was so humbling to me. Emi is enjoying her first Thanksgiving in Heaven today. She is enjoying the most wonderful smelling, tasting banquet that heaven can prepare…
I know she is asking God today to send an angel down to her family to let them know she is o.k. and so happy. May God’s angel surround you all with the presence of his son each and everyday… Robin Rae-Wechter

To the entire Sheibley clan:
I’d like to thank you for raising such a wonderful young lady – for without ALL of you, she would not have been the vibrant, competitive, and intellegant individual that she was.

Love and prayers are being sent your way…

Shirley Kreim - Nov 26, 2009

To my extended family, I loved Emi like my own daughter. She was an extremely beautiful woman both inside and out. She was and is so proud of her family, especially the little ones. My heart has a hole in it and I will hold tightly to the memories of my precious Emi while she was with us. She truly has a heart of gold, which someone is so very blessed to receive. I remember her looking at the twins, back and forth just grinning her beautiful smile. I was patiently waiting for her to become my real daughter eventually, but she always was a real daughter to me. Be proud all of you as you have raised such an amazing, loving, wonderful angel with a HEART OF GOLD. I know she is with us and in our hearts. My heart goes out to each and every one of you. She made me a better person and I am so thankful to God that she was and is in my life. I love you guys and know that God is with you all. Love, Shirley Kreim

Lisa Suver - Nov 26, 2009

I pray Joy for you again and that it comes soon. Thank you for the gift or organ donation on Emi’s behalf. My brother was a liver recipient when he was 14 and lived a full and wonderful life.

Bob, Chris & entire family, You have our deepest sympathy in the lose of your angel “Emi”. At Nate’s graduation party the comedian Jay Hendersen enjoyed “Emi” a lot, teasing her and asking what her plans were after graduation. Emi was and will always be successful in heaven as she was on earth. God has even better plans for Emi in heaven, because she has touched so many people’s lives on our earth, image what her spirit will do in God’s heaven. Emi has fulfilled God’s wishes by donating her organ’s to bless others. Emi was always a giver and will never be forgotten. I just want to let you know what a honor it has been to have met such a beautiful person, who has enriched our lives. Just remember your angel Emi will be waiting for you on the other side. My prayer for her loved ones that God will keep you in his arms and embrace you in this time of need. God Bless!

Dear God,
You are all powerful, all loving and you have ordained this child. You may have been ready to take your angel but the Sheibley family may have not. You have set the table for her and gave her a new name. I ask that on the day of thanksgiving, they become overwhelmed with joy and love; and even if she is not physically at their table, she is at yours. I pray with all the faith that I have, that this may comfort them.
In your name,
Amen
