Aunt Betty, Linda, Lori and families
Our deepest sympathy in the loss of Uncle Emerson he is going to me missed greatly by all of you. He held a special place in our hearts as he and Aunt Betty were always extremely good to us as children prior to having their own family. Betty Lou and I always looked forward to holidaying with them in the summer and we would do things we never did at home. Thinking about you all at this very difficult time and look forward to when we can all be together again.
Love always Heather & Murray Ritchie

My deepest condolences to you Betty and your family. Emmerson was a very kind and gentle man. He was always there to help me with odd jobs around my townhouse whenever I needed something done. He will always be fondly remembered.
