My deepest condolences to Emily's family. If I remember correctly when I was a child she was called Toni Ann. She used to babysit me. Her first born son and I used to jump on the bed and sing the Beatles song " Yeah Yeah Yeah "
I'm 66 now and have very fond memories of her and Pete and Aunt Emily and Uncle John.
She was very precious and I was lucky to have known her.

I remember Emily Ann from when I was such a "little girl" and my parents would bring our family to Pottsville to visit. I guess the last time I remember seeing her was about 60 years ago. The girls & PJ were very small at the time. I stayed with them one summer. She was always so beautiful & elegant like her Mom.
