    Emma was one of my favorite cousins. I can remember all the fun times we had when I was spending the night with Sandy. Emma worked hard & then came in & took care of her family. I am so sorry that you all have been limited to very little Visits during the COVID 19. Sandy, Steve & the rest of the family, please know each of you will be in my thoughts & prayers as you say goodbye to your Mom & Grandma. Love you all!
