I am so sad to hear of Emily’s passing. Emily, Amy and I shared some of the best times together. Exploring the new homes under construction in Beckett Ridge and going back to their house to draw plans for our future dream homes, the crawl space we turned into our own club house, or just laying around watching MTV for hours. We spent some great summers together! Peace and comfort to all her family and loved ones.
