The Lord bless you, and keep you;
The Lord make His face shine on you,
And be gracious to you;
The Lord lift up His countenance upon you,
And give you peace."'

There are few words than any of us can express, to convey the empathy and heartbreak we feel for you and your family for your loss. The prayer above has brought me comfort in dire times and I wish you solace. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

I don't know the father, and I didn't know the little girl. My heart is breaks for the little girl. As for the father, I've seen the videos he posted on you tube of him and his daughters. It is my opinion he loved this little girl. He seemed to go out of his way to make sure they knew they were loved.
I'm sorry for your loss, I can't imagine the anger you must feel, sir. God be with you.

Please sign the change.org petetion going around facebook sign and share..For those that think it won't help or can't do anything, you've heard of Trayvon Martin right?!? Thats how his case got national attention, social media and online petetion. If the town of wise and local pd's won't do anything we need to get the word out. Put it on facebook and twitter..The justice system didn't help Emma in life but her death doesn't have to be in vain.

This is probably the great works or Judge Jeff Hamilton. He is the worst judge ever & doesn't listen to anyone abt any issue they have with the other party involved. If he is to blame something should be done abt it. He is a HORRIBLE person. Spiteful & vendictive! Keep our children safe get him out of Wise county.
I have cried over this child although I didn't know her, justice has to be served. I prayed that she would recover upon hearing that she had passed I am outraged. I would gaurantee that drugs were involved knowing who Juwan is. He is trash! I do wonder tho abt the father wanting publicity. I does seem that way. Either way no child should ever have to suffer from something so horrible. She is walking the golden streets hand in hand with our saviour. RIP baby Emma. Precious angel!
The safety of our children is in the hands of judge Elizabeth Wells but she is a JOKE! She doesnt care about the children, she IS NOT concerned with the well being of the kids.... I know!! I have seen it myself....

Emma deserves justice & in the process MAJOR changes need to take place in Wise county J&DR court and in WCDSS before another precious child pays the ultimate price!!!

I would like to say that i am praying for all the family of little Emma Because each and everyone needs a Prayer for Gods will to be done.
I would also like to say that Brandy's sister Alicia is headed down the same road, something like this is going to happen to one of her girls also. These women moving every Tom, Dick and Harry into there homes with there precious children better back up and regroup. There is no man worth the safety of your child.
Alicia you need to raise your standards, you just move every man you meet into your home and swear that you love each one of them better then the last and look what you are exposing your girls to and they will follow in your footsteps so you need to put better in front of them. You are putting your children in as much danger as Brandy did and you don't realize it just as Brandy didn't realize. So all i can say is Wake the hell up before something happens in your home. Your girls Dad needs to try to save his kids NOW before its too late. Alicia Can you not learn anything from all of this?

1st- its in noway any of my family showing Juwan or Brandie any support.. i fuckin hate Juwan an he is my family, close family.. my dad hates him (oscar williams) my dad even called the cops the day before Emma was beaten. He told 911 that brandie was at uncle davids (juwans father) bc they have had a warrant for juwan for about a month at that point for probation violation.. dad told them to send an unmarked an not to the house but sit, wait an follow her, thst she would lead them right to juwan bc she was hiding him until he could rat on more ppl or pack his ass hefore he got caught an arrested.. but instead the cops traced the 911 call my dad made an decided to play 1000 questions with him an my step mom an never even attempted to follow or question brandie an she was dropping off fake smoke for david to sale for them.. so i partly blame the cops, they had the chance to follow brandie an arrest juwan.. BUT NO!!!

BEN not sure if you was even aware of this but my dad wants you to know he is so sorry an that he tried a few times to get juwan off the streets but we all know our grand police force!!

2nd- Juwan was an still is facing 14 years for violating his probation..

3rd- i an my husband had a visit from the state police on Emmas case, they have a solid case aganist juwan an ms brandie.. an yes i agreed to testify aganist them espically juwan! I know Juwan better than anyone on this earth an the police even said if they wanted to know juwan ask his sis (me) an this isnt about ratting on juwan or brandie. Its about Emma's life that was taken, when it all could have been prevented, esp the day before..

4th- Uncle David still doesnt believe juwan had anything to do with it but he also wont believe his son is a snitch. I told ujcle david to make sure he comes to court in emmas case an juwan violation case an he could finally hear the truth about his piece of shit son..

An again im family an i think the death penalty is to good for them.. they need life in prision, so they can be beaten an rapped daily..

Like i said before becareful what you put into this world bc it gives it back to you.. an God dont like ugly!! Juwan will get his!!

You know, if you have such a damn problem with this dude, take it up with him PRIVATELY--don't bring your stupid sh*t here! I'm glad this man is communicating with the community.. everyone grieves in their own way. Maybe seeing these comments helps him with his grief. Maybe talking to the community via this website helps him. How sick are you to come here and say this man just wants attention? If you have issues with him or things you want to say, speak to him privately, evidently you know him and know how to contact him somewhere else aside from Topix - at least that's what you imply. The fact that you keep coming back here saying, "Ooh, you don't know him," blah, blah, blah, indicates you have some sort of issue with him... well, it isn't for the entire freakin' world to know. We came here to express our sympathies... not to see you express hateful, accusatory words. God will sort it all out -- not you or me or anyone else. God will take care of this, and whoever is guilty knows they are guilty... a precious, beautiful little girl is going into the ground at two years old... and you honestly make me want to f*cking vomit... come here and pick a fight with this child's dad on a site where everyone can see.. immature and stupid! This forum should be about memories of this baby.. and sympathies for those are grieving.. not for you to come and take out your personal vendetta against someone.. seriously, take your negativity elsewhere, preferably in the privacy of a chat between you and Mr. Baldwin or a phone call or something... this baby girl is dead... her precious life stolen from her... use this forum to speak of her to keep her memory alive... you should be ashamed that your personal feelings toward this man have caused you to look like a damn fool. If what you're saying is true, then people don't need anyone stating that... God will take care of those who are to blame... He doesn't need you to come here and spread your freakin' negativity to everyone else who is just trying to leave a kind word.
SOMEONESOMEONE - I completely agree with you. Everyone grieves in their own way. This poor man just lost his precious baby. He is hurting. Talking about it and bringing awareness to the public about such a heinous crime in order to keep the guilty culprits away from others, may be what helps him. I agree with Benjamin in the fact that Emma deserves justice. No one has the right, including/especially a mother, to harm a child. My message to Brandi is this...if you read this or someone tells it to you: If all evidence comes back as Benjamin has explained and you are guilty of this, I hope that they hang you from the tallest tree by your darn toes. You had absolutely NO right to withhold the children from their father just so that you could attempt to hurt him, that is not right. Loving parents should not make the children suffer because of their own selfishness. Benjamin: I am very sorry for your loss. Losing a child is never easy, no matter the circumstances. However, losing a child at the hands of another (especially someone who claims to love them) and in the manner that you had Emma taken from you, would most definitely have to be 100 times hard. Again, I am very sorry for your loss.

GUILTY UNTIL PROVEN INNOCENT, I thought it was innocent until proven guilty. And Raychelle maybe they should be testing your crack addict ass. I am family too and I could bring a lot of your skeletons out of the closet. Your Dad's too, who was brought up on rape charges along with hostage charges. I guess the snitch is really yaw!!!! Make room for your Dad, cause he may be evicted from that house soon!!!!
All because you told he is a snitch too!
To the family of Emma I am sorry for your tragedy, but it's my understanding the little girl fell from a very high place.....it's suppose to be INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY!!

The drs and autosopy support the theory that this little angel was beaten to death. And had been abused for a while. Once they are proven guilty they need the max for their sentence.

"Fell from a very high place"??? EXPLAIN to me WHY a 2 year old would be able to fall from a very high place if she is being cared for and looked after properly? Even IF she fell that is still neglect since its a parent's responsibility to make sure a child stays safe. A 2 yr old doesnt understand "danger".... Jwuan & Brandie didnt care about Emma's safety and well being, if they did they would have kept an eye on her and she wouldnt have been able to "fall"(Which is the biggest load of hog crap I have ever heard). I believe with all my heart they beat, tortured and neglected this child and Emma has paid with her life all because the court system & WCDSS still goes by the antiquated belief that "Mommy knows best"..... SICKENING!!!

Benjamin, I don't know you or your family I have followed this case on the media but I have to say that you seem like a caring father who tried to fight the system for the best interest of your children, you do not have to justify yourself on here, some ppl just love taking ther ppls misery and using it against them for some heartless reason. I'm so sorry that this has happened to you and your family, she was a beautiful child, and you seemed to be a good father to her, You are in my prayers.

Words cannot even express how sorry I am for your loss. Benjamin I will sand behind u and fight for little Emma. I've seen so many child abuse cases and so many that SS have failed including people making complaints and noone listens. I seen a 3 month old baby beat from the top of its head to the left big toe. Not only did it get beat but it was sexually abused by the mother the mothers brother and another guy. I think anyone that takes the life of a child needs nothing but the death penalty. Its sad so many families try to have kids and can't. I've always wondered why so many can have kids and then turn to abuse or killing. This is a world wide problem and it will probably never end but it doesn't hurt for everyone to try. I don't believe in abortion either but I want get on that subject. I think in our communities there should be somewhere to take a child if they start feeling like abusing them. I know there's never enough money to start something like this but something has to give.
A child should never have to suffer like Emma and so many others. I wished there was something out there that could save a child's life. Not like SS because they have failed so many.
I will pray for you and your family. I will stand behind anyone who fights for a child who has fallen victim to ABUSE!!!!! MAY GOD BE WITH THEM ALL!!!!!

This is an awful tragic thing that happened to this beautiful child and a true MOTHER could never allow this to happen to one of her children.I think MONSTER is a better description of her than MOTHER.God bless this child and her father.
