To Richard and all Emily's Family,

For as much as I can, I share your grief with the loss of Emily. She will surely be remembered by her sweet smile and kind, encouraging spirit. As a nurse, we shared a kinship; as well as being part of the same Church Family. I will miss her.

May the love of God, family, and friends comfort you during these difficult days.

With our love, BJ Ellender & Jack Royal
