    God is with us all and sends us His message of love in many ways. I am a witness to the one He sent in the hearts of so many truckers who came to say goodbye to Emmett at the church last night.

    Katy, Micah, Lee, Dottie and the entire LaPierre clan, Susan and I are truly heartbroken by Emmett’s passing. Although it always pained us to know how ill Emmett was, it was always a joy to see him out in the yard playing with his siblings or helping his grandparents. Please know that we are sending our love and keeping all of you in our thoughts and prayers. Godspeed Emmett

    So very saddened that Emmitt has gone to the Lord. Lion is right, he was courageous and brave. I so enjoyed watching him grow in our neighborhood, following Tony our mailman on his route, when I had any construction going on he was right there observing every moment. The cranes, chippers, trucks, bobcats. He was very blessed to be given to such a loving caring strong, family. Watching him out in his grandparents yard with all his motorized vehicles playing with his brother, sister, and cousins, I will miss that. My heart is broken for all of you.

    I want to express my sympathies for your terrible loss. As a Team Lick rider, Emmett was an inspiration to all of us. As a grandparent of children close to his age, I can only imagine the pain you’re feeling.

  12. To all of Emmett’s family: So very sorry for your heartbreak. My thoughts and prayers are with you all at this time. He was such a happy lil man even with all that he went through to survive as long as he did. Though it seems impossible at the moment, all I can think of is Matthew 5:4.

    Know that I love you, dear Katy. ❤️
