"Mom, from the very beginning to the last time we were together, you were a true source of love and comfort. You had a special way to warm ones heart. Your dedication and love for family was and is an amazing inspiration. Your tenderness, your thoughtfulness, your kindness, and your caring were all gifts that we received. I have so many wonderful and loving memories, thank you from the bottom of my heart. You illuminated my life. You lived your life in peace, you truly were an angel. It is now time for you to join love ones that have gone before you. Words cannot explain the sadness that i have now that you are gone, but i know that peace and love will always be with you. "

"Emma, you were such a source of strength to my family. You shared your home with my brother Mark and his young family when he was facing an uncertain time. You loved deeply, gave generously and believed in the goodness of your faith. Thank you! Rest in the Lord, my dear lady. Kathy Keilman Sokol"
