  1. Emily was a large part of my chilchood memories. Playing in their backyard with Herb & Rick and walking their dog Tiny. She was such a sweet lady and I am glad I was able to reconnect with her a short time ago. She shared stories and pictures of the family she loved so much and we laughed at the things we remembered on Marwood Road. Heaven has just received a beautiful angel.

  2. For many years I worked at Kodak with Emily. I will always remember her as being smart, kind, pretty and having the most beautiful blue eyes. I’d see her now and then at Wegman’s or Unity at Park Ridge. She was a true lady.

  3. She was my aunt emily and my godmother.My aunt was one of the sweetest ladies inside and out. I remem0b.
    er as a child going to her house eating good meals and playing and laughing alot. I will forever miss her. I love you Aunt Emily. May peace be with you.
