In Memoriam: Emily

In Memoriam: Emily

Mary Soto



It is with profound sadness that we must inform our Elements family that we have lost, unexpectedly, one of our beloved family members.  

Emily was one of our massage therapists and had been with us since February 25th, of 2016.  She was a caring, young woman, who was joyous in her profession and who always walked with grace and humility.

Emily studied massage therapy at Cortiva and was hired not too long after her graduation.  She had a slow, calming style that was intent on providing healing for the mind, as well as the body.  It was important to her that she left her clients feeling whole.  She entered each session with a warming smile and a joy in her heart that was always so evident.    She was always prompt and professional, kind and courteous, humble and respectful. 

Outside of the Elements, she worked hard to help her father work on CPS children who could not afford dental care.  She put her heart and soul into doing this work, as well as her massage work.  Her sense of duty and her charitable heart were so strong, and despite all the difficulties, she rarely ever complained because she knew it was something that needed to be done.  We all admired her for being so selfless and compassionate.

Emily was fun-loving, and happy-go-lucky.  Her bright smile filled the room. Her kindness and positivity were often contagious.  She would lend a helping hand quietly and happily.  Although she was young in years, she was an old soul, wise and with a quiet virtue that is seemingly so rare these days.   She was a great joy, a beautiful soul, and an angel of light.

We will miss Emily greatly.  We are all devastated at the loss of someone so young and so beautiful. She impacted our lives deeply and we will never forget her. We are all so much better for knowing her.

To her family and friends, we send our deepest sympathies and we offer our support and prayers to you. 

To Emily, we say farewell for now….You will be greatly missed, but we will always remember your beautiful smile and your angelic heart.  We send blessings of love to you, and cherish the divinity within you always.

Until we meet again…..Rest in peace .
