Her great-grandparents are Virginia Hatcher of Tifton and Stene Hawkins of Omega.
Emi loved being snuggled by her brother and sisters and blowing bubble kisses to her mom. She lived for each moment, unafraid of the future, not fearing the unknown, and she had a very peaceful demeanor and genuine smile. She was the epitome of love and light.
She was preceded in death by her grandmother, Debbie Lastinger Webb; her grandparents, Maurolyse and Talmadge Webb; her grandfather, Bobby Lastinger; and her grandfather, Harvey Hatcher.
