I am sorry for your loss, Emma was a person who always saw the good in people without a disparaging word. A dreamer with an active mind, her desire to gain knowledge was never ending. Her character and knowledge will be missed, thank you for being a good Grand Mother to Danielle! Peace and comfort to you Danny and Diane.

My Aunt Emma Neal was not only a beautiful lady but a fun person to be around.She always seemed to be upbeat & energetic. I don't think she ever met a stanger.My mother & her were close friends.I'm sure there are several other ladies past & present that can say the same thing as she had several friends.I will always remember
the trips to Florida with her Diane & Danny Neal.I will miss her but take comfort in knowing she's in a much,much better place with several family & friends that went before her.

Love You Emma Neal,

Steve
