Dearest Chris, I didn't know what to possibly say when you first told me of Emma's moving on to be with our Father in Heaven. There is nothing I could have possible said that would adequately quench your sense of loss. Instead you have ministered to me simply by your manner and your incredibly kind spirit. May you remain close to God , even when you hurt terribly, cause He alone can be your comfort when something of this proportion occurs. That is our prayer continuously for you Chris. Much love, Edward & Tere Mascali (friends from The Cordell's)

It has been 15 years since I last saw Emma, and yet I have thought about her everyday since. Emma was my boss back at Extension, I called her my "mentor". I still have the countless notes and cards she sent me, her words of love and encouragement. Each year her Christmas cards brought a smile to my face and laughter to my heart as we both promised that we would get all the "extension gang" together again.
Oh I regret that we never did.
My heart aches upon learning of Emma's death.
The brightest star I've ever known is gone from the world.
Peace Emma.

Love You, Brian & Melody.

I went to school of ministry and Atlanta Worship Cntr. with Emma. She was a special person. She was always interested in you and made you feel a part of her life. She treated everyone the same. Thank You Emma for always being a listener and loving me just like you did your best friend. You taught me alot about self esteem and who I am in Christ and who Christ is in me. I love you and will miss you. You not only were beautiful on the out side, you were exceptionaly beautiful on the inside.

I remember Emma as a person who was always cheerful and full of God. She always tried to get us single girls to mingle with some cute single boys. Make friends she would say, doesn't matter if you don't like the guy he might just have a friend you do like!
Emma, you are being missed but I'll see you again someday when our Lord and Savior returns to take us home!

I am very sorry for the loss of Emma for her family, friends, for those who knew her and loved her. She will be missed by more than anyone really knows.

My memories of Emma are part of the happiest memories of my life. Emma touched my life and probably never knew that her spirit infected mine. She was never short of a smile and kind word when I needed it. I do not think she knew the extent to which she touched me. I will miss knowing that Emma is out there helping others to smile.

Ou Maat,
Ons het die boodskap laat ontvang, want ons was op die pad in Alaska. Maar Bernadette het ons in die hande gekry en laat weet. Ons harte gaan uit na jou in hierdie krisis tyd. Mag die Vader jou die krag en onderskraaging gee wat jy nodig het om deur hierdie tragedie te kom. Hy is getrou, en al lyk dit nie nou asof Hy in die prentjie vertoon nie, nogtans is Hy tog daar vir jou. Ons hoop ook om persoonlik kontak te maak, en het probeer bel. Hoop jy het ons boodskap op jou selfoon gekry. In Sy liefde,

Emma: What can be said about Emma that can sum up the person she was? A 10,000 watt smile that could light up any dark area of your day, a heart that would dwarf the Montana skies! Emma improved the life of everyone she met including my own. She was one of the biggest encouragers that I've ever had, and one of the best friends I'll ever find. Emma taught me to add small details that would make the ordinary dazzle and shine forth... I will think of her always every time I see "the small things of life"..

I met Emma through AWC. She was and has always been a beacon. One who stands strong, even in strong winds. She will be dearly missed. It is a treasure, to have known her.

This is a wonderful idea. I never met Emma but from all reports around the family she was a Godly, loving servant of the Lord. May her soul rest in peace in loving service of God and may her family all be blessed with peace
and healing.

Emma was a dear friend of mine and a true disciple of Jesus Christ. She poured herself out to those God brought to her everyday of her life. When you saw Emma, you saw Christ. What a bright light she was to a lost and dying world.
