My love and prayers go out to you, Betty, and your family. I know your many memories will bring you comfort and smiles in this difficult time. She was a woman to model a life after. Emma was kind, feisty, loving, and fun...not to mention brave in living on that mountain. I will always cherish my times with her.

Emma was a great mother-in-law during the 25 years that Betty and I were married. And even after our divorce, she continued as a forgiving friend and the fun-loving person we all knew. I am among the many who miss her.
