A heartbreaking news story made headlines recently. According to reports, the daughter of an iconic American couple has tragically passed away.
Olympian Bode Miller and his wife, professional beach volleyball player Morgan Beck, made the tragic announcement on social media. The world was stunned by the news. Many fans and fellow athletes reached out to offer support and prayers.
"We are beyond devastated," they wrote. "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 every day. Our family respectfully requests privacy during this painful time," they wrote.
They have now released another statement about the tragedy.
"We want to thank our friends, family and every one of you who sent a message, said a prayer or donated for the overwhelming expression of support - we are truly touched and blessed," Miller wrote alongside a sweet snap of him kissing Emeline’s cheek. "Our midwives started a gofundme campaign to raise funds and we intend to donate these funds raised to worthwhile causes connected to water safety education. We are inspired to make our baby girls memory go forth and help prevent as many drownings as possible," the caption concluded. "We will post more soon on our plans and efforts."
Bode's wife posted the same message on her own social media account. She accompanied it with a picture of her daughter.
Please join us in sending our prayers to the Millers. We ask that God will see them through this tough time. We take comfort knowing we will see our loved ones again in Heaven.
