Faces of the storm

MOORE —

Emily “rode up to heaven on a unicorn traveling on a path of love leaving Moore,” her family wrote in her obituary.

She was a beautiful princess, her family wrote, with a love for “all things girly.”

A mother to a cat named Sabbath that wandered into her family’s home one day, Emily also was a gifted dancer who could sing “Time Warp” in its entirety.

 

Nicolas McCabe, 9: Nicolas was a vibrant kid who loved the water and one day dreamed of owning his own pontoon boat.

His parents, Scott and Stacey, remembered their son was born just outside the couple’s home because he “came so quickly that (they) couldn’t even make it to the hospital,” according to his obituary.

Nicolas was smart and had an “ornery grin,” his parents wrote.

He loved going to the lake, playing with Legos and listening to country music. Nicolas’ parents said their son “adored” his family and all the friends he made at Plaza Towers. Emily Conatzer and Sydney Angle were his classmates at school.

“Though his years weren’t many, the memories and impressions he left on those he came into contact with is sure to endure forever,” his parents wrote.

 

Sydney Angle, 9: Sydney had a passion for softball. She had two goals in her sport, win MVP and pitch.

She recently accomplished both — collecting the most valuable title earlier this month and pitching in a tournament last weekend.

“She had a smile that would light up; always had a smile. She was a wonderful young lady,” family friend Laura Schneider told television station Fox 6 in Milwaukee. Sydney’s parents were originally from Wisconsin.

Sydney’s softball coach, Landon McNeill, called the kid “a pickle.”

“Sydney was real quirky,” McNeill said. “She could be anywhere and have fun doing it.”
