Don and family,

It was with great sadness to read of Emma’s passing. I am so glad I had the opportunity to visit and have a great lunch with her a few years back. It was a great time to catch up on all the family members we hadn’t seen or heard of for years. Don and Linda please accept my condolences. I didn’t have the opportunity to know her children but they have lost a great Mom. Her husband and family were her life.

Thoughts and prayers are with you at this sad time.

My connection with Emma goes way back to when I used to walk back there to take the kids for walks when they were babies. Emma and Don were always together and always so proud of all the kids. We all enjoyed working with Emma at the Nursing Home because she always had a funny little comment to brighten up the day. Please accept our sincere condolences.

Condolence from Bruce and Sylvia Fancy on December 9th, 2014 6:38 pm

Our deepest sympathy to Don ,Sandra, Donald, Ronald, David and their families. Emma was one in a million, such a joy to be around. I remember when we worked at NQNH, she made it more like play than work. Always a smile on her face, I could be feeling pretty bad at one thing or another and somehow a smile, a wink, a little quip from her was enough for me to see things weren’t really so bad after all. I have always cherished her friendship through the years, and so enjoyed the chats and cups of tea at her home. Emma, it was an honor to have known you and to have had you as one of my truest and best friends. You will be missed by all who knew you. Goodbye my friend..

Condolence from Bonnie and Garnet Delong on December 9th, 2014 7:10 pm

Condolence from Dwight and Louise Fancy on December 9th, 2014 9:31 pm

To the Freeman Family: It is times of great loss that we realize how limiting words can be and how special our friends truly are. We hope you hear the words we cannot speak,for words can do no justice to the heartache you and your family have suffered. We ask that you don’t mourn the loss of Emma alone and that you share your memories of her with us.I have so many good memories of Emma when we worked at NQNH . We had so many good laughs and was always so happy when I knew her and I would be working together. All of the yearly barbeques that we were to their house to play music Such good times

Dear Donald and the whole Freeman Family, We were greatly saddened to hear of the death of your Precious One Emma, we knew and loved Emma for a very long time. Please read John 5:28,29 as it deals with the resurrection promised to Emma and others as well. Many people have been relieved a great deal by reading that scripture. We can only wish you our love and best wishes at this sad time of your life.
Sincerely, Del & Mary.
