My mother Lena met Emma at Mapleview five years ago and always referred to her as her "Best Friend". They bonded over their love of baseball and my mom always loved the little visits from Emma every day from down the hall. She will truly be missed. Sending our deepest condolences to the Verdecchia family on the loss of a wonderful lady.
