Michael and Barbara I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your mom. I have a lot of very fond memories of the times I spent with Barbara and your parents as a teenager. My last visit with Barbara and Mrs Schaefer was a few years ago. She was such an amazing woman.

My parents, Alton and Oteal Vordenbaum, and we all loved and enjoyed knowing Emilie. Such a fine and interesting person. We will remember her fondly. Frank and I would certainly wish to be with us for the services but are both in the hospital. May God's comfort be with you.

Oma was a wonderful, brilliant, caring woman! She always had supportive, kind words for me, even the day I met her, which was the day the love of her life passed on, she was loving and kind. I will never be able to express how much she means to me and my family. Her strength was amazing, her intellect to be admired and her love for Jesus was unmistakable. She showed Jesus' love to all who encountered her.
