My prayers to Ron and the rest of Emily's family. It was a blessing to care for Emily during her illness and get to know Ron. Now I pray God's comfort upon you during this very difficult time. There is no more pain or suffering for Emily, but you as her family are left here without her, but you have many precious memories!! She was a great lady!!! She would say little things sometimes that would crack me up! I would wonder, "where did that come from?" , but that was just Emily!! She will be missed!

Tammy Martin

To Ron, Denise and the family: May you have peace during this sad, sad time. Emily was such a bright light when I worked with her at the Library. She was refreshingly candid and true, and enjoyed her interaction with both co-workers and patrons alike. I admired her class, honesty and her never ruffled appearance. Her love for family, books, and life shone from her. I am better for having known her. She will be missed. Sincerely, Tammy Martin
