Please except my family's deepest condolences on the passing of aunt Emma Ruth. I myself never got to meet her in person, but rather through stories and photos. Poppy " Marion Victor Horney 1912-1992" loved his sister deeply. I can only imagine what a great heavenly homecoming this shall be. A mother reunited with her son.A wife reunited with her husband. A daughter reunited with her parents. A sister reunited with her siblings. And a slew of nieces and nephews reunited with a mostbeloved aunt. Marvin & Edith are at the front of that line, as I can only imagine pushing and shoving. Momma was just recalling her trips to Orlando,and what special memories she has of her aunt and kenfok. We will be keeping the family in our thoughts and prayers.
