    Valerie and family, Your mom was such a nice, energetic person who enjoyed life and laughed often. I have fond memories of her from the early years. Glad her struggle is over and that she can be made whole in Heaven.

    I would liken my father and your mother to people who were truly the fabric of our lives. Emma Jean was wonderful, joyful, always honest, encouraging, loving and laughing…. loved her!
    My heart is with you.
