Emily was a very sweet lady. She taught me so much about flowers when I worked at the greenhouse as a teen. Her husband Bob was the sweetest and most gentle man to work for and Emily was so patient and caring as well. They were two of the most sweetest people a young teenager could have worked for as a first job. Growing up Emily was a very dear friend of the family. She will certainly be missed by all of us who loved her !

Debbie and Bobby,
My heart has broken. It is hard to remember a time growing up without your mom and dad. Many of my fondest memories are Sally and I sitting around the kitchen table drinking coffee and sharing some of Aunt Em's great baking. There are so many GREAT memories that I could write a book on the influence she had in my life and the kindness always rendered. She was an older sister to me and your dad was like a brother. Her loss is hard for me to bear being so far away. I will always remember your mom and my mom coming to Georgia to visit us. Their first trip down was when the Oklahoma City bombing occurred and the second was on 911. Aunt Em said Phyllis we aren't coming down here together again. Many memories are flooding back. All the nights we would work out at the greenhouse doing weddings, funerals, proms, etc. My life has been blessed by the love your mom and dad gave us. My prayers are with you at this difficult time . God bless
