Emily & I shared a love of people, travel, foreign food and especially fun.
We loved to talk about travel experiences & eat out at unusual restaurants
On one of my adventures, Emily made suggestions of places & hotels, she even talked me into cancelling a short flight and taking the trip by Bus saying “Oh it’s so much more fun on the Bus”. Well it was except my rental car didn’t turn up at the Bus station and left me stranded.
I was booked in for the last 3 nights in a hotel called “The Brass Key”. a very chic hotel that had a Wine & Cheese Party at 5pm each evening and my room had every bathroom product I could possibly want
I was emailing Emily while having my cheese & wine when a guy came dashing past in a flimsy bathrobe saying “Has anyone seen my husband”
Then he came back waving his arms saying “Oh Where Can He Be”
YES IM IN A GAY HOTEL & No Emily has never stayed there but looked it up on the internet & thought I’d find it fun
I miss Emily so much, I’ve just returned from a month of travel which I wish I could have shared with her. I’ve driven a Winnebago in 10 different States, seen a Cowboy wedding, Slept in a Teepee , stayed in an RV Park where 2 people got shot- so had to check into a hotel for the night (as Trailer Park was sealed off). I’ve seen a 72oz Steak eating challenge- Emily would have loved this last adventure but equally sure she is still having adventures of her own. Denyse

Sincerely,

Dear Claudia and Family;

News of Emily’s death saddened all of us. When I think about Ray, it’s mostly in context of his time with Emily. The later decades of his life were joyful for him and I’d attribute much of that to the quality of his relationship with her. Ray found more of himself through her. Her understanding of him and her unconditional support of him unlocked gateways that enabled him to explore the richness of his family and the culture in which he grew up. I thought the two of them made a beautiful couple. They possessed personalities that complemented each other. It strengthened them so that they could explore the world together and create fun-filled adventures. I know that Ray would never have done this alone…

Not having your mom here will be difficult for you and your family. Every time I saw her, she spoke of you. It was evident that she was always engaged in all dimensions of your life. Having lost Emily’s ready source of common sense, wisdom and love will be missed by all of us but especially you.

Sincerely and with love,

George, Clarisse, Rebecca, Scott, Chloé, Alex and Brian
