Middle and High School memories of lunch time have always been special because Emily was there to play the piano and we would sing. She could play anything and her voice was beautiful. I wondered if she ever really appreciated how talented she was! I will miss her energy and loyalty. I wish her grandchildren could have had more time with her. My sympathy to all.

This is one of the last pictures I had with Mom. I’m so happy that she lived to see the day that she could hold her great grandson in her arms. Mom will be missed by so many, but I do believe (as did she) that we will see each other again. Until we meet again Momma. ❤️
