  1. I had the pleasure of working with her daughter Emily. Though I never met her, Emily spoke highly of her Mother. Thoughts and prayers for the family.

  2. I’m so sorry Emily to hear about your mom. I know how you feel. I worked with Emily and she loved talking about her mom and family. My prayers are with you and your family. Take care.
