  1. Tupie I will surely miss you… I’m thinking about our runs together, having drinks, singing the commodores “Jesus is Love” on Christmas, the family softball games that you loved to be at. You are truly missed and truly loved -Rush

  2. Tupie…I Love You Forever. Memories that we shared together are Eternally engraved in my heart. Our Lord God is so pleased with You, I wish I were there with You in Heaven to hear Him say, “Well done, good and faithful servant”. Just meditating on the banquet that God has prepared for you upon arriving in His Kingdom of Glory is profound…my little earthy mind can not contain the awesome Love of God. I know that You are so ecstatic to behold the wonders of the Lord and the Place that He has prepared for You…God’s Peace and Joy is forever Yours Tupe! I Love You…Zette

  3. Oh Tupie! How you will be missed by so so many. Cousin #4! We all shared wonderful childhood memories, in our yard, in grandma’s yard and the summers spent on 60th St., as well. Rejoice in heaven with all of our relatives who have gone ahead of us. Pray for all of us here. You are forever loved and engraved in my heart. I will miss your warmth & how your eyes twinkled when you’d give that handsome smile.I’m so grateful for the time we were blessed to be together.Your leaving us reminds me how important family is & what a special family we have been blessed with ………..

  4. Emery was a beautiful and gentle human being. My heartfelt sympathy goes to his family. He will always be a treasure.

  5. Emery was an incredible person who was intensely charismatic and who people gravitated to. Love surrounded him and one couldn’t help but feel tremendous comfort in his presence. He was a the most genuine and authentic person you could find, a very caring listener, and impacted all those he interacted with. Emery & I were the closest of friends for nearly 20 years. He was affectionately known as “Mr. Big” by me and my immediate co-workers who also adored him. There is definitely a part of me missing now and it hurts. We shared our innermost feelings & vulnerabilities and he rescued me from the darkest of moments. Our conversations were always deep and meaningful. We had many fun times too and experienced times where we laughed ourselves into tears. While this tragedy is so unfair, I feel immensely blessed I got to see him almost every day during the last four weeks of his life. I will forever miss him and think about him. When you meet Emery’s family, it becomes very evident where his special traits come from… his family. I wish them Christ’s presence & comfort in this most difficult time.
