Sherry and Perry,

My deepest sympathies to you and your family during this difficult time. Your mom was such a kind woman. May your memories of her give you comfort and peace.

Love Tina.

My condolences to Perry and Sherry and family on the passing of Emily.

I remember family time spent with Emily and Ernie in my youth. Vacations together, visits to the farm where Emily grew up, and once Emily took care of me when my folks were away. She was always welcoming and hospitable and quick to feed anyone who came by.

It’s nice that she seemed happy in her last years at the Hillcrest.

Thinking of you all.
