    Aunt Emily will be missed by so many people! I know her whole family feels like a huge part of their heart has been torn apart! She always had a smile even when others would have been crying! I know without a doubt that this world was a better place because of Aunt Emily! My thoughts and prayers are with each and everyone of those who loved her!

    To Emily’s Family: I am so sorry for your loss. Emily was a wonderful person. We shared alot through the Weatherization Programs of our agencies over the years. You could always depend on Emily to stand up and fight for what she believed in and was never afraid to speak her mind if she thought it would be for the good of the people we serve. She will be deeply missed through out the State of Tennessee Community Action and HRA Agencies. She was a very special person and a good friend and I will miss her greatly.

    How sad to hear of the death of your Mother and Nana. The times I saw yall together said it all. It was so obvious she loved her family deeply and just adored Cason. No doubt either that the love was returned. I hope the memories you shared can carry you through these next few trying weeks. If I can be of any help at all, I will be glad to return the favor. Bless you all during this time.
