Emma Rose Lick
April 10, 2023
Emma Rose was overwhelmed with love which spread through her every action. She left this world at the young age of 10. She never met a stranger. She would walk right into their bubble with a touch and say, “Hey!” followed with the most beautiful smile. What she couldn’t speak verbally, she communicated with her spirit. Her infectious giggle would brighten anyone’s Soul. She could be equally feisty; she had a quirky sense of humor and was amused at her ability to get a rise out of the people she knew. Emma Rose was so smart and perceptive and had a keen ability to let those that knew her most in on her extreme intelligence! She LOVED her “Mommy,” but ultimately was a daddy’s girl. Her brothers whom she affectionally called “Baby Fletcher” and “Watsy” were her whole heart. She jokingly referred to them as “boss babies,” one of her favorite movies. Her spirit animal was a “neigh horse.” How appropriate her favorite show was about a horse named Spirit. “Spirit Riding Free.” Emma Rose’s spirit is now free from Rett Syndrome that affected her earthly body since age 2.
She was survived by her mother Melissa Rushing, father Christopher Lick, brothers Fletcher Paul Lick and Watson Garner Williams, grandmother Angelia “Nani” Rushing, grandfather Paul “Pawpaw” Lick, great grandmother Ruth Howes, close cousins Wesley, Felicity, Sara, Henry, Olive, and Sigil, dearly loved aunts and uncles, friends, teachers, therapists, and doctors.
Preceded in death by grandmother Pamela “Grandma” Lick and grandfather Terry “Papa” Rushing.
