Our first thoughts are with Earl and her family, whom she cherished above all. We met Emily and Earl for the first time in international exchanges over 30 years ago and since then we have always had very strong and warm relationships. Emily was more than a friend, than a sister, than a mother or a grandmother, she was an angel, always benevolent, generous, who loved to transmit and exchange with the whole world.
Emily has left us and leaves a huge void behind her, but the wonderful memory that our French family keeps of her, is eternal.
We love you Emily.

Emily was like a family member for us. We'll never forget her.
David and Maud visited Emily and Earl when they were about 17 years old, more than 30 years ago, through an exchange trip between France and USA. While we were in Linden, we admired Emily's welcome qualities: she was preparing breakfast without forgetting to put flowers on the table, she was taking time to help us speaking english, to allow meetings with family and friends. She was reading a lot, she was interested in politics. With her, we travelled together through the USA, sometimes with her students, who appreciated her so much! We could see how important her family was to her, and how it was important for her to celebrate family moments. She taught us values of life, we'll never forget that.
Since these exchanges between France and USA, even if we saw each other only a few times in our life, we kept in touch, thanks to Emily. She never forgot our birthdays and our children's birthday dates, our children received a Halloween postcard each year. Incredible, isn't it? Earl and Emily came to France to stay in our family, it was such a pleasure for us! Monique and Jacky went to Linden in 2017, David and his family in 2018, these moments will be treasured memories.
We are grieving and we think a lot about Earl and his family. Earl is such an lovely man and their couple was an example for us.
Love and regards,
Monique, Jacky, Maud and David
