Emma became very special to my family while my Father Earl Daugherty and she were at the Lantern. She was a precious and sweet soul and she loved being with us when we were with Daddy. We always loved to share Little Debbies and candy when we brought it to Dad and we always encouraged her to join us and she never turned us down. She was very fond of my brother Bob. She will truly be missed by all that had the pleasure of knowing her. I wish we could have known her before. We are truly saddened to hear of her passing but please know our prayers are with you.
