    Sorry that I will not be there and Love goes to all the family. She taught me how to crochet, fixed my skined knee after bicycle wreck and was God Mother to my two children. She was my second mother and her memory will sustain me the rest of my life. I am blessed to have known her. God Speed Dear Emma. Love, Judy
