She is survived by her parents Kirk and Jody London; brothers, Austin London and Kirk London II; grandparents, Dennis and Linda Dybas; niece, Lillian Thompson; nephew Jack London; numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins; and so many special friends. Emily is preceded in death by her paternal grandparents, Dwight and Clara London.

Living across the street for the past several years, I've been able to see her grow and develop into a beautiful young woman. Although we've never really talked to each other as friends, I am here for you as a friend and neighbor. It saddens me to hear of this loss. Please accept my condolences.
