May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.

Robbie and family, I did not know Emmett very well but I always enjoyed the time I got to spend with him. I loved all the stories! It was amazing how hard he worked and how much he loved the Lord and his family. He now has his reward and most certainly heard the words, "well done good and faithful servant".

Emmett also had a vegetable garden that he planted for many years and would always bring over some crop to share with us. Once Peggy passed on, Emmett would say every day how he just missed her and wanted to be with her. Emmett is now with his beautiful...
