  1. We are deeply sorry about the loss of Emilia.

    We remember her as such a good person, and often think about the times we spent together. She was always happy to offer her hospitality when we had the opportunity to visit her. She will truly be missed.

    Our hearts go out to you and your family, and we will keep you in our thoughts and prayers.

  2. With each passing day, since we first met, thoughts of Emelia make me smile. Prayers and condolences to family so dear. With blessings from God, Emelia will return back to loving arms of her husband, who she missed and adored so true. Reunited again as peace and harmony abound, two souls become one again. Angels will lead the way back home. I will always remember this family and how much love and care was shared! xxoo
