Emmitt. You had a way of making people smile, feel significant, and certainly loved. I always enjoyed sharing a laugh with you. Thanks for always making me feel welcomed. Thank you for the little nuggets of wisdom you shared with me from time to time. You never had to make God one of those crafty lamps... God is your beautiful light!
