    Dear Tom and Family–

    Tom, I was so sorry to hear this news. Your mother and my mother are close to the same age — my mom was born in 1923. While we are all glad to have our ancestors reach a full life and days far beyond the “four score if by strength”, it is nevertheless a sting and a sorrow to lose a parent. We are not meant to be orphans. May God grant you peace and consolation. Sincerely,
    Ed Morse

    Our deepest sympathy to your families. Emma was a wonderful woman and I always enjoyed time with her! One of my favorite memories is when she would help with youth bowling at the Coleridge bowling alley. She was so supportive of the kids and always encouraging them. I also remember Emma riding on the school bus with Homer to school events and she would be busy checking off names. A “mother hen” to so many! Cherish each of your memories!

    Margaret and Tom my deepest sympathy. Our thoughts and prayers go out to you. I have many fond memories of Emma and Homer. They were always very nice to me. I spent many nights at their home in Coleridge when the roads were snow blocked and I could not make it home.
