Dear Linda and Family, With my deep sympathy in the loss of your mother, Emily. Emily was always a very special cousin, and I'm sorry we so rarely saw each other. I'm so proud of her beautiful cross-stitch wall-hanging she made for our 50th anniversary. God bless you and all of Emily's family. With Love, Eleanor Hejtmanek Topeka Presbyterian Manor 4712 SW 6th Ave, #220 Topeka, KS 66606-2292 (785)-272-6806
