She was a very great adoption mother to have as I was growing up in her household. I just want to send a BIG blessing to Joshua, Louise, and Ronald, for their loss of a super great mom, husband, and daughter.

Emily was my oldest daughter's 2nd-grade teacher. I've had the privilege of working with her at PBES. She was such a beautiful person inside and out. I will sure miss her. Thoughts and prayers to her family. Special prayers for Josh.
