    Rod, Julie & family, We were all so very sad to hear of your untimely loss. We all have fond memories of Emily throughout her Denair school years. Hoping all your fond memories will give you some comfort.

    Casos family, My deepest condolences. I knew Emily in high school. My then boyfriend now husband only knew her as the girl he would honk at when he passed by your home as a joke. She was a beautiful girl with a huge heart and a love for animals. I pray for the families healing. May God wrap his arms around you all for comfort in this difficult time.

    I went to Denair school district my freshman year. I didn’t know a single person there and Emily was one of my 1st friends. She made me feel very comfortable and welcomed. It was just nice to have a friendly face to help me through the years.She will be very missed i am so sorry for your loss.

  4. Kirsten Sisco- Moser says

    I remember Emily from 1st grade, my first year at Denair. She had the 1st birthday of the school year and we all celebrated in class. She was always so nice and easy to talk to. Recently she sent me a funny video on Facebook and it felt good to know we still had a friendly relationship all these years later. I’ll always think of her with a smile and I’ll miss knowing she is here on this earth with us. Sending love to the Cascia family.

    Such a lovely young lady with a smile on her face. May Emily rest in peace in the beautiful place called heaven. She left her family and friends way too soon. She may be gone from here but not forgotten. Condolences to each of her family.
