After Tony's passing, Emily returned to La Grange Park to be closer to family and friends.

Emily was a powerful friend, when we were working to establish sanctioned bridge games at the Landings on Skidaway Island. The success of these games was, and still is, largely due to her influence. Also, she was great support when situations came up that were difficult to handle. I'll always be thankful that our paths crossed.
