Sorry to learn of Emerson's Death. He was always present during sporting events when the kids were younger and told funny stories at graduation parties and the like. I am sure he will be missed greatly by all.

Condolences to All

Love and sympathy to the Cough family.

Uncle Emer You were the best Father, Brother, Husband, and Uncle..
There is a big space in my heart now that you have passed away..
My heart is saddened because you are the last of the Cough boys who we as kids always had so much fun with when we would come visit from Buffalo...
I loved to come to the farm and play with all my cousins...I will never forget your laugh and smile and the stories you would tell of days gone by..

Thoughts to all the Cough family at this time. Emerson was a true family man.

Fond memories of childhood days in Woodville when Emerson was the milkman, then mailman and of course story teller. Always had a happening to talk about from the Widrick farm. If only he could have written his memoirs it would be great entertainment. Good man and friend to all.

sad to hear of Emerson's passing, prayers are with all his family! Having competed with and against him in bowling, I am thankful to have known him! RIP Emerson and give Bernie a hug for me!

We would like to extend the family of Emerson Cough our deepest sympathy. He was a great father and husband and a very good friend of ours. I will miss him and all of his stories. One thing about your dad he would never let me forget about the time the lounge chair flipped and I fell over backwards. Emerson would laugh every time he saw me. He will be missed by everyone who knew him. Rest In Peace Emerson!! Sheila & Chris Morales.

For all of Emerson's family,
As members of St. Cecelia's church, my husband and I both chose ministries to help those in our community. I visited him and Lenora to take their picture for our church directory. Then he lost Lenora and we didn't see him for awhile. Then my husband was assigned to take communion to Emerson. Some people only take communion once a month, but Emerson almost always got it every week. We talked about who got more out of it - Emerson or my husband, Bill (the...

I will cherish the time spent with Emerson. The love ,the humor and even his belligerent times. Most of all the stories of his life!
I felt like I knew his children through the stories and how his love for his children and there love in return kept him happy. His wife and his Mother were the shinning star part, lots of stories there.
Emerson had a way of making everyone around him feel special just with his smile.
I pray the Family all know how much he loved them. And hold to...
