  1. Dearest Emmitt,

    Our Lord and Saviour has ransomed you home. Your in his arms and you will live forever more in his house of many mansions. I am truly blessed to have you and sherry in my life. I was so young and eager to learn so much
    about the brick plant and everytime you came to our plant you would always make sure you explained all the process of your project to me. Bobby would just chuckle and smile, and say your going to be a brick maker yet.
    You were a blessing to all of us but especially me when i was going thru such a time in my life. You adored your
    sweet loving wife sherry and she was your Georgia Peach Princess and her eyes danced everytime you walked in the room or you began to speak. You will truly be missed and my heart is broken with sorrow for her. I know your perfect now that our Father has you safely in his arm. On those days when sherry feels she can’t do it alone I know he will be there to carry her as he has carried you. You and sherry both were like second parents to me, everytime i stepped a foot in augusta you made sure i had all i needed for my stay and you would come and pick me up and take me out to the nicest places to eat!!! God Bless you and keep you and give you unending love and amazing grace! I love you “Daddy Emmitt” you lived a life by our Lord and you were a faithful servant.
    Rest peacefully in peace and we will meet again one day in our Fathers House! I am going to come see momma sherry and i will be there to see where they have laid the temple of an angel to rest!! Love in Christ “your adoped daughter in texas” I know you will be waiting on us in heaven..
