We send our deepest sympathy for the loss of Emerson Lethbridge – We have fond memories of all the trips to Limerick seeing Uncle Emerson, Aunt Beatrice and family. He was always busy doing something on the farm – always busy with the animals. We were told that one time he heard strange noises coming from one of the buildings. After cutting a small hole in the building, he found a mother raccoon with her babies. The farm always seemed to have chickens, fresh eggs for the picking. At one of the last reunions Uncle Emerson milked the cow, showing all the kids how it was done and yes, you could drink the milk right from the container right at that moment. If fresh milk wasn’t to your liking, there was always the water bucket right inside the porch with a scoop ready to quench your thirst. You can’t think of the farm without thinking of Boots the horse. Uncle Emerson always found time to give us a ride, and yes some of us stayed on longer than others. He even let us climb upstairs in the old building by the quonset to play with the old record player that was up there – at least I think he knew we were up there. The garden was always tended to with pride, fresh tomatoes and potatoes were given to take home when we made the trip down for a visit. We all smile when we think of the wonderful times spent together; he will be deeply missed.
