To Emogene's Family,
You have my deepest sympathy on your loss. Emogene and I were Roommates at Western and she was a Bridesmaid at my wedding.
Even though I haven't seen her for quite some time, I have always counted her as one of my dearest friends.
I have so many fond memories of our time at Western. She taught me how to make the best home made Pimento Cheese and every time I have made it through the years I have always thought of her. She is one of the nicest, kindest, and most caring people I have ever known.
My heart goes out to you for your loss. May God Bless You, comfort you and give you peace. Nancy (Mayse) Mann

Emogene and I were roomates at Western our first two years of college. She was a dear friend and we had many good times together. She was a special person and I loved her. I know she will be missed. Her family and friends are in my prayers.

My heart goes out to Emogene's family for their loss of such a dear person. Emogene and I were friends in high school and were room mates in college. We also rode the school bus together to the high school in Burkesville. I talked to her a few months ago and we had plans to do some things together after I retired and moved back to the states. Now I think about that and it makes me sad that we won't spend that time together. She will be missed by everyone.
