My heartfelt and deepest of condolences to the Emmert Clan. I have the fondest of childhood memories surrounding many trips out to Ohio to spend with extended family. It was always with grace and humor everyone regarded the large crew of children who gathered for mischief and adventure. Mostly under the watchful (and slightly more permissive eye) of aunts and uncles at Granpa's. All of life's greatest memories are achieved alongside our loved ones, so it is with sorrow as well. In this time of loss may memories of a man known for equal parts humor and humility give you comfort. Uncle Tom, his wife Sue, Sons and daughter, all of his brothers, wives and children are remarkable people. People who I am grateful to call family. In this time of grief and loss, you are missed, you are loved and you are not alone. Thinking of you all, Robin (John and Ingrid's son)

So very sorry to hear of uncle Tom's passing. He was a good man and I have many fond memories. The one thing that stands out is how very much he loved his family, and how happy he was to marry his high school sweetheart. God bless you. You are in our prayers. Karen, Larry, Chris, Mark Power
