Dear Family of Emma, we thank God for the sweet, sweet woman that Emma was. She provided so many smiles to those of us who were blessed to know her. Her faith was steadfast in Christ and provided an example to all of us on how to follow Him ALL the days of our lives. Our deepest condolences to all of you, but we know she is now finally HOME. Thank you for sharing her with us! May God richly bless you with the comfort that comes from knowing she is with the Lord. Martin and Debbie Peacock

Bob and Jane Somers Dear Family of Emma, we feel very close to all of the family. We shared the same neighborhood and school community for many years. Our paths have crossed in other ways too. She will be missed by all of you and many others here on earth but we rest assured she is happy with our Lord. God bless all of you.

My sympathy and prayers for all of the family. Emma was a very dear lady that lived for Christ. May her love for Christ and her family and friends be a heartfelt treasurer that will live on in our lives. God blessed her with many years in her earthly home but know she is at her Heavenly Home rejoicing.

All of us pickleball players will certainly miss Emma. She was our sideline cheerleader and assistant equipment manager. She had a great sense of humor and we will truly miss seeing her. Emma was part of a great family and she will be truly missed. Kaye Brown
