Remembering Emile

Today would have been Emile's 39th birthday…

Emile V. Sept. 22, 1968-Nov.17,2006

Emile V. was killed in a car accident November 17, 2006 while on business in Trinidad. Renatta writes “In 2006 our family experienced the birth of our son Joshua (July 14th) and the death of his dad (Nov 17th) [Emile V.] excelled in whatever he did but it is perhaps his ability to love effortlessly and his energy for life that we will miss.”
What a privilege it was to get to know the V family. A very memorable birth… as the midwife I was honored to assist Renatta & her family with Josh’s birth. I remember Emile’s smile. The picture below is a good example of his exuberance.

Joshua is under the blanket, minutes old, being admired by family at home.

Renatta, Zan and Joshua you all are in my thoughts & prayers!!
