We so remember Uncle Benny and Aunt Emma with laughter and love! As one of my daughter's said of Aunt Emma: "she was a hoot" ! With our sincere sympathies to all of us left behind! Great is our God!

Aunt Emma will so be missed. No more tomato starts to bring her. No more breakfast and lunches out with that happy face and jokes. Still love her, and glad that she is a peace.

My thoughts are with all of you. Aunt Emma was a very special person and will be missed by all. Heaven's gain. She is rejoicing with her Lord and Savior. What a blessed thought.
