My prayers to all of Emma's family members. She was a wonderful lady and was always such a joy when she stopped in at E & M Market. I remember her coming over a few times for me to go help her with Del when he was not able to get up, never wanted to bother anybody. They were all such a wonderful family and I am sure they welcomed her home with open arms.
