Roger, Reuben, and family, No mere words can possibly express the sense of loss and sorrow that you must be feeling. I miss her very much already and can assure that she also left a large void in my world. I can only take comfort in the knowledge that she was among the very best in this world and is most worthy of the rewards of the life after this for which she was very prepared.

Ruben, Roger & family: While growing up in our own little family corner of Cupples Rd., I'll always remember Aunt Emma as a dear Aunt whose kindness and gentle side embraced our family. She will be deeply missed by all.

Dear Roger & Ruben,
There are no words that could possibly comfort you at this time. Your mother was greatly loved by all who knew her. When I lost my child, your mother was beautiful. She talked with me and everything she said was as if she knew exactly what I was feeling. She was such a comfort. I wish I could be as comforting to you. I love you both and your beautiful wives, Yvette and Sally.
Your cousin, Cana

Grandma, you were my best friend and the most amazing woman I've ever known. There are no words in my heart that can begin to describe how much I miss you. I will pray every day for the rest of my life that I honor your memory by being a good mother, sister, daughter, and faithful woman of God. I love you my Gigi, my friend, my teacher, my grandmother, I love you.
