Leave Condolences

Dear Champion Family: I cannot even begin to know how you feel. When tragedy like this strikes, many wonder why bad things happen to good people. The Bible does provide the answers. Rest assured that God sees all things and feels your pain. He promises a time when things like this will never happen on earth. ( Psalms 37:10,11 and 29). In the meantime, he encourages us with words such as found at Philippians 4:6 and 7...Do not be anxious over anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication along with thanksgiving, let your petitions be made known to God; and the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and your mental powers by means of Christ Jesus. Please look up JW.ORG when you have a moment. Please accept my sincere condolences for your loss. Margo Moore.

Emily was such a sweet and talented young lady. Joy and Lindsey were so proud of her. Prayers and the peace of God's comfort to all of the family.

I did not know your family and saw this tragedy posted on our church face book. I did want you the surviving family to know how deeply sad we feel of your loss, may our good Lord give you comfort and peace for your loss and pain. We are praying daily. God bless

We send our deepest condolences to the Champion family. Our hearts are broken at the loss of Miss Emily and her parents. We first met Emily, her parents and her beautiful dog Skylar when she moved next door to us in 2009-their kindness and devotion and Emily's sweet spirit was obvious. In the years since she has been a shining light in our community-serving her equine patients with devotion, dignity and grace. We are thankful to God-that He allowed them into our lives, even though it was only for what seems like a brief moment. This past week we have been numb-and are now beginning to feel the enormity of Emily's loss. We lift up the Champion family in prayer now and in the days to come-may He comfort you and keep you in your hour of need. Doug, Donna and Jenna Allen Vinton, Louisiana

Remembering this dear family in thought and prayer. Also remembering Cadiz and Trigg County. Tragic and sad. Thanks be to God, however, for future Resurrection.
