      Emma was a dear lady who will be missed. She and a friend of our family traveled together to visit us a few years ago. I was impressed with her stamina and great good humor—she was a delight to be around. We knew our  friend was fortunate to have Emma in her life, as they joked around and obviously both enjoyed and relied on each other. My husband and I last got to visit with her in person a couple years ago when we travelled through PA and went out to eat with her and our family friend. We knew she was in declining health but are sad to hear that Emma passed away. May you take comfort in knowing that many people whose lives she touched are remembering her fondly.

      Emma was one amazing lady. She and a friend came to North Carolina to visit me a couple years ago. We had the best "girl week" ever! She was up for any of our adventures, and her sense of humor kept me in stitches the whole time! My condolences to her family.

      I only visited with Emma a few times, knowing her through Jayne Meier.  The first time I met her I knew she was someone I would love spending time with.  A person so full of life and fun to be with.  I am so sorry I will not be able to visit with her again.  I offer comforting prayers to her family and friends at this difficult time.
