I knew Emma Lee from work on the base. Such a beautiful and pleasant person. Just seeing her picture brings back so many memories of she and Bud of long ago. I'm sure she will be missed by so many that loved her. Prayers for all.

My heartfelt sympathy goes out to your family. Be assured that God knows your pain and already has arrangements in place to make everything right again (Isaiah 26:19; John 5:28,29). Rely on Him in prayer during this difficult time, for He will give you peace of mind and "the power beyond what is normal" to cope (Philippians 4:6,7; 2 Corinthians 4:7). Take care.
