Our heartfelt condolences to John and Emily’s wonderful family. I had the pleasure of knowing Emily as my mother-in-law and was always inspired by her warmth and loving support towards me and my children. Her grandchildren meant the world to her. Her “pumpkins” were always welcomed at her home. God bless you Emily. Rest in Peace.
