"Emery and I were 14 and 15 year olds when we graduated from Henry R Edmunds School in 1952. We walked to school in those days, and I always stopped at his house for company to go on to school. I remember him as being always very serious and honest about everything. I'm sorry we did not keep in contact. God bless him and his family. F. McDonnell."

"Emery was such a kind and generous man. He opened up his and Kathy?s home to me when I was commuting from south Jersey My fondest memories are when Kathy and I would come home from a long day at work and commuting, we would find a bottle of wine sitting at our places at the table. He always prepared us a delicious dinner as well. Rest In Peace dear friend Cheryl Smith "
