Sorry to hear of Emma's passing. I well remember visits at the home and her new home at Davis, one recently. She was an inspiration in several ways. Family bonds are created and last forever. Prayers are with Emma Lee and Emma's siblings, relatives and friends. I regret I will be out of town during the service. Emma Lee, God bless you and give you strength for the days ahead.
