I can't even imagine how heartbreaking this. Can't even come close to imagining. But our thoughts and prayers go out to Bode Miller and his family, after Bode announced on Monday that his 19-month-old daughter Emmy passed away after drowning in a pool on Sunday.
We are beyond devastated. Our baby girl, Emmy, passed away yesterday. Never in a million years did we think we would experience a pain like this. Her love, her light, her spirit will never be forgotten. Our little girl loved life and lived it to it’s fullest everyday. Our family respectfully requests privacy during this painful time.
For the record -- in no way am I saying or suggesting that Bode or his family weren't paying attention to their daughter and negligence is the reason this happened -- I'm simply saying make sure you pay extra special insanely close attention to your kiddos around pools. Make sure doors are shut and locked, gates are up -- I can't imagine what this loss must feel like.
Again, thoughts and prayers go out to the Miller family.
