I just heard about this. Your Mom and my Mom (Henrietta) were close friends. I remember going to your house near City Hospital and Emma making the best chicken and rice!! Such a happy memory. I moved away in 1982 and the last time I saw her was at my Moms funeral in 1986. I’m so happy you had her for so many years but I am so sorry for your loss. She was a beautiful woman inside and out! Love, Sylvia Rabago
