Emily was my mom she was my best friend also.she thought me to always see the glass half full and to see the good in everyone and to always help the ones who need even if you don't know could light up any room she was in. Like a ray of sunshine she was a very special person (angel) I miss her but I know she is watching over us so we better behave.I will always love her and she will always be in my heart.

Emily was my grandmother, a true treasure to me. There are to many memories to share just one so I want to talk about love and life lessons. Granny had a way of making you feel special, like you were her favorite. (I am pretty sure I was her actual favorite though). I lived with granny my whole childhood and she always made sure that we never went without from our need to our wants. she taught me selflessness.
She took the time to always play with us, like riding "horse" on her feet. She held us and hugged us. She couldn't stand to see anyone unhappy or in need. She truly loved, and taught me love. she taught me compassion.
Granny never met a stranger, she could strike a conversation with anyone and by the end of it she would be like an old friend and end with a hug. She had a way about her to just make you feel special, she would touch your cheek look you in the eyes and say "your beautiful" or "I love you". She taught me friendship and kindness
Granny loved the simple things in life like feeding the ducks, fireworks, climbing Stone Mountain or just a picnic even if it was just outside in the front yard. She taught me to be satisfied with what God has given me, and humbleness
There are so many things that I have learned from my granny, she taught me patience, honesty, to stand up for myself and my beliefs, and yes she even taught me a little vanity for she was beautiful. Most of all she taught me love
