Bode and Morgan Miller's daughter Emeline 'Emmy' Miller died after drowning in a neighbor's pool on June 10, 2018.

The Midwife recounted some of the words said at the toddler's funeral and re-counted her birth after she arrived three months early.

She said: "The strength that Morgan found that night was Emmy's first gift.

"For Emmy knew that her time here would be short, and she knew that in order for her parents to survive her loss, that the strength that they found that night wasn't optional, it was necessary.

"The moon moved across the horizon in the cool night sky, Morgan and Emmy danced together as this earthly angel began her journey here to change the world."

Olympic skier Miller and his wife were left devastated by their daughter's drowning.
