Emmerson Elizabeth (Emmy) Boyle

Funeral Details

Tuesday 9th September 2014 at St Christophers Catholic Church, 34 Roberts Rd, Airport W, VIC

After the Mass, we will go to Sunbury cemetery where Emmy will be buried with Matty and Lissie. We are then going back to the Airport West Football Club (Hansen Reserve – just a few streets from St Christopher’s). They have kindly volunteered to put on “the wake”. Pink was Emmy’s colour. (The irony is Pauline can’t stand pink, but Emmy insisted on everything being pink!!!) So, if you have something pink, please wear it if you can join us at the funeral.

19 October 2010 - 2 September 2014

So loved by
Parents – Pauline and Rohan
Brothers – Joshie and Tom
Grandparents – Liz and Phil O’Donnell and Liz and David Boyle
Aunties and uncles –Steve, Cathy, Melissa, Michael, Sally and their families
and so many others!

Dear Pauline and all of the Boyle family. I think of you all the time and Abi talks about missing Emmy to this day. Emmy was bursting with joy and took every opportunity to find fun in all she did. She was a precious gift to this world and we were fortunate indeed to bask in her sunny smile and hear her laughter. I always saw Emmy running and skipping, with a big grin and big plans. That is how Abi describes her to me. We send you our love, Emmy has left a beautiful, permanent impression on us. Beth and Abi Green

To our dearest friends Paul, Roh, Josh & Tommy B, we remember Emmy as a whirlwind, a firecracker, cheeky, never still, always up to something! Jumping, no shoes on, food on her face, gorgeous blonde curls, happy, bold, bright eyes, taking on the boys, chasing Tom, busy, full of life! Forever young, in just 4 short years, Emmy has managed to leave a huge footprint on this Earth. That takes a special kinda girl. All our love and support. We are here for you guys xx Kath, Anth, Isaac, Amz and Paddy Cullen

Dear Paul, Roh, Joshie and Tom, Our hearts are broken, along with everyone else's at the tragic loss of Emmy the "energiser bunny”. We can't imagine waking up every day and you guys not having her noise, voice or busyness in your home and not having her there in the daily normalities of family life. We watched her trying so hard to keep up with the big girls at Ella’s birthday, loving being at a “girls house”. And didn’t she have a ball. Tom proudly said the other day that he had just gotten her to level 4 of the computer game with her. Everyone spoke so beautifully and bravely on Tuesday, so proud of you all. Paul you always said you weren’t fussed about having a girl, but you loved it ! And congrats to you for always getting the clip in xx We always had a quite chuckle over Louey/Mel having chiidren. Chuckle no longer she has Emmy to look after – she will be very busy – Love always your sis xxx

Dear Paul,Roh,Joshie and Tom, Our hearts are broken, along with everyone else's at the tragic loss of Emmy the "energiser bunny".We can't imagine waking up every day and you guys not having her noise, voice or busyness in your house and the daily crazy activities.

Thank you Pauline and Rohan for finding the strength to share a glimpse of the beautiful life Emmy shared with you and the boys.

She was gorgeous and I remember her with a twinkle of determination in her eye, curiosity, knowing exactly what she wanted and full of imagination — she was a sprite to say the least. I am heart broken we won’t get to know her better. Take care of her Aunty Lissy and Uncle Matthew. Pauline, Rohan, Joshie and Tommy, please know that we are constantly thinking of you.

Although I did not know Emmy well, the last time I saw her she was dolled up in her tutu with her wild curls and looked so Colourful and I had to tell her how wonderful she looked. I recall seeing her so happily playing at the sports centre without a care in the world. I feel blessed to have this as a memory I can keep of Emmy (Sara). Our love and prayers are with you now and always. From Mat & Sara xo

My precious little Emmy, you left us so suddenly and way to soon. My Tuesday play dates will be so empty and lonely without your beautiful hugs, your cheeky smile and our wonderful chats about everything we shared together. You always brightened up my days with your happy laughs. We loved to play with playdough,Mr.Potato head'fixing the dolls with the nurses set, reading stories and watching our favourite T.V. shows together.I loved dancing with you in your many pink tu-tu's and playing hide and seek was always a favourite. As the weather brightened we loved our walks with Lenny the wonder dog to the park where your wonderful imagination took over. You always liked to boss me around and didn't mind telling which character I was to be! Rest in peace my beautiful angel at least I have some comfort in knowing that your dear Aunty Mel, who knew and loved you for only three very short months will have welcomed you into her arms and will always take care of you. My two beautiful Princesses together forever. On our last day together we went shopping to buy Pa a present for 'Pa - Day'then after our morning treat together you asked me to carry you out to the car. As I lifted you up I said hold on tight and you wrapped your arms around me and snuggled into my neck and whispered into my ear 'Ýou're holding me Nanna and I'm holding you! Emmy-girl I will always hold you forever in my heart I love you so much. My heart is shattered ...Nanna xx

To all the wonderful family and friends of Pauline, Roh, Joshie and Tommy. Stating the obvious, this has been a tough week following the tragic death of our precious little Emmy. Pauline, Roh and their extended family have been inundated with offers of love and support - for which we are truly grateful. We've experienced the very best of community support from St Christopher's Parish/School, the Gowanbrae mob, the Airport West Football Club, the Gowanbrae Kinder, and so on. I would like to also thank my colleagues at Tobin Brothers for the extraordinary care of Emmy - as well as us and our family. Emmy was born only a couple of months before our Melissa so sadly and suddenly died. For us, not only was she our darling grand-daughter, but a very special ongoing reminder of Lissie. We have been so blessed to have enjoyed the almost four years of Emmy's beautiful life. We had enjoyed so much time and special personal moments with her. Our grief simply reflects that love. All our love is with Pauline, Roh, Joshie and Tommy. Be assured of our continuing loving support as together we try, as best we can, to get back to daily living. Life will return to normal when finally Collingwood and Essendon play off in a Grand Final!
