    Emmett cared for my lawn, and for me, for many years when I lived in Little Rock. He was one of the kindest, warmest, hard-working people I knew. And we always joked about being cousins because of our last name. What a lovely person. I am grateful to have known him. Sending love and comfort to his family and friends.

      Thanks Stacey, I remember him speaking of you, he held you in high regards. I believe we knew your family from Greater Trinity.
