To the family, I’m so sorry for your loss. Emily was a loyal friend to my daughter, Missy and many others. She loved you all so much. I will never forget her smile and never saying goodbye without saying "I love you". She will be forever young.

As young girls growing up in Arkansas, it never crossed our minds that one of us would leave this earth from such a young age.
My fondest memory is when your doberman chased me up the tree in your backyard, I think that I was about 9 years old and you could not get him to stop barking so you went and got your momma to pull him back. Since that day, that breed of dog scares the holy cow

My thoughts and prayers are with Mitzi and the rest of the family. I haven't seen Emily since we were kids, but it sounds like she was a devoted mother -- which is no surprise, since that runs in the Mitchell family. I hope you all find comfort knowing she's with Aunt Debbie and my Nanny (Betty J. Davis), Grandpa Mitchell, and her siblings, and all those gone to rest before her.

It hurts that she was burdened with so much pain and sorrow. But she will no longer suffer the ills of this mortal world. I watched her grow up with all the other Levy and Pike Ave kids that felt comfortable at my home with my children, and I know Jesus has wrapped his loving arms around her and she will forever be safe in the knowledge that he will watch over her children also.

Emily was a friend of my husband's family, and I only meet her a few times but what i did know is that just by talking to her for just a few short times is that she loved her babies. My heart and prayers go out to you children. Your mama loved you to no end. And know Jesus is holding her and she is in a wonderful place, R.I.P and IN LOVE Emily . You will be missed and forever loved by many.

Emily was the only one that stood up out of a crowd to make me feel welcome at Boone Park elementary. I'll never forget that. She was a good friend to me until we split ways and lost contact. I am sending my condolences to all family and friends.
Posted by: Ashley Cox Douglas - Cabot, AR - friend May 17, 2012
It seems so unreal to see a classmate gone so soon...My condolences go out to the family and close friends of Emily. Just know the God makes no mistakes, and she definitely is in a better place...R.I.L.

Our thoughts, prayers and sympathy goes out to all of Emily's family and friends. It is never easy to let a loved one go, no matter how young or old, just rest assured God has her in His arms and will guide her through to Heavens gates. God also will give you all of the strength and peace you need to get through each day, just call upon His name and He will be there to help you through whatever

Emily and I were inseparable during elementary school. Sleepovers with all of our friends, bike rides, races (she was ALWAYS the fastest!), sun-tanning on the roof of her house, fighting with our little brothers...there are hundreds of memories that I will cherish. I wish we would've kept in touch as we grew up. To all of her family...I am so very sorry for your loss and will be praying for you all.

She was a unique person and stood her ground like a mama bear when someone threatened her cubs. I

Emily will be greatly missed!!! I grew up with her all the way from childhood. I remember when her, Misty Jandrejas, April Klutcher & I would Double Dutch every day during recess in elementary & how we play all over the neighborhood (Pike Ave) together... Them were the good ole days!!! We had no worries back then & only had fun!!!

I watched Emily grow up from a baby to a teenager and from her picture looks like she turned into a beautiful lady. I remember her and Josh where always fussing at each other but Loved each other so much. She had such a Big Heart and always wanted to help anyone even an animal that she always wanted to rescue and I beleive brought a few home. Wish I could have stayed in contact with Mitzi and her family.

I only met Mrs. Rios a handful of times, but each time it was evident how much she adored her children. You only had to talk with her for a moment to see the love she had for them. I am so incredibly sorry for your family's loss. The death of a loved one changes you; the death of a parent even more so. I can only hope that time will bring healing and eventually peace, though when we lose
