    Ms. Emily has always been my hero. She’ll be with us every time we march. I will miss her.

    I grew up across the street from Emily & Ernie when I was a kid & they lived in Fremont. I remember all the neighborhood birthday parties & get togethers for know particular reason and the Almond Roca they delivered every Christmas. They were friends of parents. I will always have fond memories of those days. Great people!
