My Gramma, My Shero, My cooking partner, My prayer warrior, My favorite comedian. The love I have for the AME church came from you. My desire to ALWAYS be around family, came from you.
You watched me come into this world and I watched you as you left this world. There is no love like the love you have given me. One day I'll be a grandmother and I hope to make you so very proud. The influence that you've had on multiple generations has been shown through the fruit of your labor. The hours you spent sacrificing for others while you went without pay never went unnoticed. I honor you as your daughter's daughter but I honor you more because of your unconditional love for me. God of our weary years, God of our silent tears. Thou who has brought us thus far on the way. Thou who has brought us thus far on the way. Thou who has by thy might, led us into the light . keep us forever in your path, we Pray.

Keep praying for your children's children children. Give Grandaddy a kiss for me.

I love you a bushel and a peck.

"Sister Emma" to me, found a place in my heart when we Glenmary Co-Missioners began our work in Keysville in 1990.
From what I just learned "Sister Emma" died a day or so after our last chat. She was still working for her Community. There was the Library project at Boggs Academy. There was our plans for October's "Come Back to Keysville" days.
Her work will live for generations to come through all who vote, read, write, study, and participate in civic events, plus in Keysville and surrounding communities.

My deepest sympathy to the Gresham/Rhodes family and to all who knew & loved Emma. My husband & I met her when books were needed for the Keysville Library & we remained friends. I was, and remain, in awe of all she accomplished,her spirit, her love & caring.
She will be remembered always.

I attended Levi White Elementary School from 1962-1969. Mrs. Gresham was a caring person, my brother's second grade teacher and a wonderful example of what an grade school instructor should be.

As a young boy in the A.M.E. Church it was Ms. Emma Gresham who taught us leadership. She single handedly rebuilt a city. I am sorry to learn late of her passing but will always cherish her constant reminder that there is no meaning to the word "can't" when there is a goal. Thank you for sharing her with us and above all Thank God for Her Life.(Previously Athens, Ga.)

I was priveleged to have worked with Mayor Gresham. She was an excellent educator of course, but she and I would visit in her classroom just to connect spiritually. Those are my fondest memories of her, and I thank GOD for all that she was able to accomplished as HIS servant. I pray for the repose of Mayor Gresham' soul in the NAME of JESUS CHRIST, and extend heartfelt condolences to her family, Church family, friends, and community at large. ---Myriam B.( Ron) Van Buren
