My aunt Emma was one special person. I don't know what I would have done when my mother (her sister) was ill and passed away suddenly. Emma, Farrell, and my cousins Robert, Greg, and Cathy were such a support to me during that time. I have such wonderful memories of going to East Point and then to the Lake. I will so much miss you.
