You know we’re living in a sad and terrible time when all we can use is the negative things in a person’s life, to portray the whole person, in life or death.
I would like to have this opportunity to paint a memory portrait of my friend and neighbor, Susan Emmole, who died in a horrible car accident a few weeks ago.
The media printed some negative events about her past, of which we all have, and now I’m writing and wishing they restore the true character of my friend and neighbor, Susan Emmole, just by printing this letter.
Susan was a loving person who loved gardening, and I mean she really loved it, and she was very good at it, and she had a loving personality with a how-do-you-do smile for every day.
She was a breath of fresh air, and a ray of sunshine every time you saw her.
She was a caring and loving person – that was her true character – and she was also the perfect grandmother. She always had the kids in the back, had it set up like a classroom, where they did arts and crafts, painting rocks, and all kinds of terrific things kids love to do – having sleepovers, taking them shopping, and teaching them how to respect all people, regardless of race, or what they had, or who they were.
I wish you all would have known the marvelous, and one of the most glorious and spirited persons I have ever had the pleasure of knowing, and I thank God he allowed our paths to cross, and left me with this treasure – the memory of my friend and neighbor, Susan Emmole.
