Lois, Bobby, & All My Cousins & Family,

Our heartfelt deepest sympathy to all. When you have such a wonderful Mom and blessed to have a bond with her, it is truly one of life's most challenging ordeals to go through. Auntie Emily will be greatly missed here on Earth. She always had such a beautiful smile and full of life. I remember when I saw her last, she told me, "Lisa, you have such a pretty face like your Mom and Elizabeth". I will cherish those words that she told me always. It is a true blessing to grow older and have a parent around to share in your joys and accomplishments. As we all get older, it makes life more precious and meaningful. May she live on in our hearts forever. A bird chirping, a dragonfly swarming around you, a butterfly landing within an arms reach, and don't forget the Pennies from Heaven. Our loved ones will continue to leave us a sign each and everyday, we just have to use our eyes to see and ears to hear them. All the Medeiros Siblings are once again united in Heaven. Heaven will never be the same. God Bless to All. Your cousin Lisa, Joe, and Joseph Ferro XXXOOO

Lois, Bob, & family,

Your mom was an "extra special" lady who I admired & had high respect for. It was always a pleasure seeing her & chit chat of the past. Nice memories were made while you lived in our tenement. Your Mom was always cheerful, had a heart of gold, & a beautiful smile! She will always be "special" to me. May Mom rest in peace with Dad.

With heartfelt sympathy,
Dot (Cabral) Marder

I am so sorry to learn of Emily's death. She and her sister Maryanne were such devoted parishioners of mine when I was in New Bedford. I will long remember them both and the kindnesses that they showed me so often! They were two wonderful ladies and now two wonderful saints! My sympathy and prayers to her family.
