Bode Miller has spoken out after the unthinkable death of his 19-month-old daughter, Emeline, who drowned at a neighbour's pool party this month. The former Olympic skier and his wife, Morgan, expressed their gratitude for the outpouring of love and support from friends, family, and fans, and shared how they plan on honouring Emeline's memory.
"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," Bode wrote in a caption of a beautiful photo of him cuddling his daughter. "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 girl's memory go forth and help prevent as many drownings as possible," he said.
Morgan, who is currently pregnant with the couple's third child (Bode's fifth), shared the same caption alongside her own sweet photo. It's clear the parents are going through an impossible time and are looking for ways to help other people prevent such a shocking occurrence. Bode and Morgan promised to "post more soon on [their] plans and efforts" for all those interested in helping and spreading the word.
