As we celebrate my dear Emma's going home I on behalf of the Frost family would like to say Emma it was great honor for us to have had you in our lives and we are truly blessed by it. Your integrity, godliness, honesty and propensity to fight for those who are less fortunate etc has truly touched our lives as others. We love and miss you but knowing that you are in a better place in the arms of the great comforter there is a reassuring peace etc and knowing that some day we will see you again. Rest in peace our precious Emma and our condolences goes out to your family and love ones. May they be comforted knowing that you are at rest ,and in a better place.

We first met Emma in Rogers Park, IL almost 30 years ago. She embodied the words of Jesus and made our family feel at home in a new church and country. Our love and condolences to her family. She was a fighter and champion of civil rights for all. Much love to you as you celebrate her wonderful life. Sherrill Frost-Brown & family, Silver Spring, MD

Emma wasn't born a Methodist but John Wesley's words rang true,
Good works through a faith that acts in love?
This was something she could do.
Love God with all her heart and mind,
Committing all her soul,
To loving neighbors as herself
For Emma was the goal.

Emma was my dear, dear friend. I like loved her very much, and I will always hold her in my heart. She came into my life as an unexpected but welcome blessing. One of those random gifts from God.

My heartfelt condolences go out to her amazing family. You are the best testimony to the fine, strong, compassionate, intelligent woman your mother was.
