It is with a heavy heart that I write you. Emily Yeskoo died early September 24, 2019, peacefully at home in her mother’s embrace.  Emily was a young woman of determination, strength and faith. She communicated more with her silence than many do through words. Personally, she has been my inspiration and strength as I have had the privilege of journeying with her over the past 12 years.  As many of you know Emily’s House is named in honour of her. Thank you for the continued care that you have shown this family, and also the many other children and families that we meet through Emily’s House and PAC.… Another butterfly has found her wings to soar.
