Emily was one of my little cousins. I loved her slow, easy way and happy smile. An ironic story I often tell about her is one time when we she was little and she wasn’t use to the way her California cousin talked, she looked up at me and said in a slow, thick, southern drawl, “you talk funny.” RIP, beautiful cousin.
