Grandma was a very loving and kind individual. Even when she wasn’t feeling well she tried to put a smile on her face. She was always very generous and willing to help if she was needed. And she LOVED Christmas. We had many great memories spending holidays with Grandma and Papa Tom. It was always a bright point of the holiday season. She was very loved and will be truly missed. We will miss her very much. Love you so much grandma.

Grandma always made me feel welcomed and loved when I visited. I have many fond memories of spending Christmas with her and Papa Tom. She was always very giving. I will never forget how willing she was to let her teenage grandson borrow her car for prom not once but twice!!! I'll also miss her blueberry yum-yum and other dishes she made for us while growing up. I'm very fortunate to have been blessed with such a loving grandmother and to have been able to get to know her. I will miss her dearly. Love you Grandma Emma!!!

I will always be grateful to my Mom for all the love she showed to me all of her life. She was always caring and sweet to me, even in times that she was going through pain and suffering. In many ways Mom had a difficult life, but she was always kind and considerate. She loved to laugh and tried to make the best of every situation. Even though I’ve lived far away from her for many years and was only able to visit her infrequently, she never complained about it and was always understanding. Mom was a peacemaker. She did her best to get along with others even if it made life hard for her sometimes. She didn’t want to be a burden to others and did her best to carry her own load. She was a wonderful example to me in so many ways. I love you Mom and will miss you!

This is written in memory of Emma Cagle whom I always called "Mom" as she was the Mother of my dear husband Bill. I have many fond memories of her laughter, understanding, generosity and love. She knew how to laugh and have a good time even in difficult situations. She also was an understanding soul. Whenever I would be going through a trying season, she would listen and offer empathy along with wisdom.
She worked incredibly hard to make our family celebrations memorable with her hospitality and amazing cooking. Still today some of our favorite recipes are those she shared with me. I will miss her greatly and treasure with love the times we had together. ~Julie Hughes

My wife was the most loving and caring person I have ever known. She always knew what I was wanting or needed and took care to see that I got it. I loved her more than I can express and my heart aches for her. She will be missed by me and most everyone that she came in contact with. Tom
