EMILY WILL BE MISSED BY MANY, HER LAUGH AND SMILE AS I REFLECT ON FIRST MEETING EMILY I THINK: LIFE REALLY IS A JOURNEY – OR WHAT TO PACK FOR THE JOURNEY – BUT WHEREVER THE ROAD LEADS I THINK THE BEST TRAVELING ADVISE IS THIS “BRING A FRIEND” I DID, IN PERSON OR THOUGHTS FOR MANY YEARS. GERALD IS A DEAR FRIEND ALSO AND PRAYERS, SYMPATHY TO HIM AND FAMILY.
I am so sorry for you loss. I loved Toot’s smile and laugh. I remember family reunions and get together with fondness because of her friendliness and fun filled spirit of life. My love, prayers and sympathy are with you.
Ronna (Steinmetz) Stoe. (Emily Jeanette Siegel’s daughter)
My deepest sympathy to the family I have great memories of Emily we were like sisters I’ll miss talking to her on the phone. God Bless her & Family
