Dear Lloyd and family,
Our sincere sympathy to you at this time of sorrow, but also a time of celebration of a life well lived. Emma had a keen sense of humour, and a smile that would radiate around a room. Someone who was always willing to help in any situation, and did it with class and ease. She has left a legacy to her family, and also her family at Faith Centennial United Church.
May all your fondest memories sustain you at this time, and bring peace and comfort to your soul.
God Bless,
George, Margaret & Greg Saunders
