I wish I would of lived out here around her. I have good memories when I was younger of her and she was a great person and aunt. I’m glad I got to see her some before she passed away. I love you Aunt Emma and I will miss you.

Will miss you Emma. Sometimes it was hard to get a smile out of you but once you did you lit up the room.

Aunt Emma was just about the best person I’ve ever met. She would give you anything she had and not expect anything in return.
I miss watching wrestling with her. She thought it was for real,hahahahaha. Couldn’t tell her any different.
Thanksgiving was my favorite time of the year when she would come over. Hasn’t been the same since she hasn’t been able to attend.

I love you very much.

My Aunt Emma was one of the best people I’ve ever met. She would give you whatever she had and not expect anything in return. I will miss her very much. I miss watching big time wrestling with her. She really got into that. Thanksgiving has not been the same since she hasn’t been able to come over.

I love you Aunt Emma.

Aunt Emma, you will be greatly missed. You were one of the most wonderful women I knew. You were a woman of great faith, so I know you are in heaven now and not suffering. My love goes out to the rest of the family there, especially Dee, Dawn, My Mom (Rose),her other sisters: Della Mae & Chris, my sisters: Sheila & Shellie and many more. I wish I could be there.

So sorry for your loss . May god grant you and your family comfort and peace. It was a pleasure taking care of Emma. I remember when your family would have the Bingo at the nursing home. Everyone loved it. I also remember watching Wheel of Fortune in the dayroom.
