For Our EmmaEmma Evelyn Ivanovsky is our 15 year old daughter who died tragically on August 10, 2015 in a tractor accident. Emma was visiting family and helping to take care of a ranch full of animals and her Great Grandmother in California. She left this Earth exactly how she lived, she was generous and fearless. Emma was an extraordinary “normal” girl, she loved reading and music, softball and basketball were her sports and she loved spending time with her family, especially “The Littles”, her younger siblings.
Emma’s very favorite thing to do were random acts of kindness. Emma was generous and I am not even sure she realized it, it is just a part of who she was. She gave with her love, her time and her money. It could be anything from holding a baby she didn’t know for a frazzled mom to taking “The Littles” to The Candy House and using her own money. Here are a few things she did just in the last few months of her life; She gave her brother, Tucker $50 spending money the day he left on his trip to China, it was the last time he saw her. My new and very favorite hat was chewed up by a puppy and Emma went to the store we had bought it at and bought me a new one two days before she passed. Emma had saved almost $400 from babysitting and odd jobs over the Summer to buy souvenirs for “The Littles” at our end of the Summer trip to Universal Studios in Orlando, she died before she could go and buy them their gifts.
We are asking you to honor and help Emma be remembered by doing something that would make her happy. We want you to do anonymous acts of kindness in Emma’s name. It can be buying someone's food, drinks or groceries in line behind you or just giving a hand to someone in need. Print off these cards to hand out when you have the opportunity to do something kind or generous for someone else.
Thank you and know that we love you for being kind #ForOurEmma.
