To George and family, the entire Emery family of Rock, Dean and Barry wish to extend our sincere condolences to the Brintzenhoff family. We were fortunate to have known Barbara most of our lives as our families were involved in many sports activities together in our youth. Barbara was a kind and caring individual who would help others in need before her own needs. We are sorry we will be unable to attend the services, but we will make a contribution to the Rheumatoid Arthritis Foundation in lieu of flowers. God Bless to all.
