Emma, you were a very special grandma! I will always remember the summers I spent at your home. I will also remember your great personality and how positive you were. You were so fun to be around! Even though I lived across the country it always felt like home when I came to see you. I am proud to have named my child after you :) Rest In Peace Emma!

Emma passed in the night in the peace of her home, for which I am thankful. She was a remarkable person. From the first day I came home from school with Dallas decades ago, I was treated as one of Emma's own children and was always welcome in her home. I treasure the experience and memory of sitting around the dining room table with the Reeves clan. There was always something good to eat - Emma was a great cook. I never heard her say anything unkind about anyone. Dear Emma, we're all sad at your passing but relieved you are out of pain and at rest. God bless you.
