    Thank-you for sharing your mom with me all these years. I often think of the happy times spent at your home. She was one of my mom’s best friends. Emily was so talented from singing in the church choir, sewing, hairdressing, woodworking to working outside the home, and much more. It was a joy to know such a humorous, compassionate, and inspirational lady. You have many precious memories to hold forever.
