Charlotta and Family, you are all in my thoughts and prayers today and in the days and weeks to come. Miss Emily had become such a special friend in the five years since I met her and I will miss her a lot. Kenslie and I stopped by her room twice last Monday but she was sleeping both times. I treasure the picture you sent me of Miss Emily on her birthday. We are thinking of you all with sadness in our hearts for the loss but also with joy for having known Miss Emily. God Bless.

I am so sorry to hear about "Miss Emily". She was such a sweet little lady that will always be in my memories when I think about my Ma Brown's house. They were true friends and enjoyed so much together! Love to you all!
