Angie and family, I am so sorry to hear of Tom's passing. He was such a terrific person. We had a great time when he volunteered for the City looking at old maps and plans and drawings of our town. Please accept my condolences and know that I will keep your family in my prayers.

Angie and family,
I am truly sorry to read of Toms passing. Days of Stigmatines came back to my mind and the good old days.

To the entire Emberley family, I am so sorry to hear about Mr. Emberley's passing. Always loved when Mr. & Mrs. Emberley would come over to our house for visits as it meant fun stories and almost certainly some Brighams! One of my fondest and funniest memories of Mr. E. was when he appeared as Snow White in one of Sacred Heart's plays. Brought the house down when he walked on stage in that dress complete with birds flying around his head! He was one of the warmest and kindest people to walk the planet. He will be missed. Much love to you all. - Emily Tirrell - Littleton, CO.
