    To all the Connolly family~
    Uncle Emmet was such a kind and loving man whom I admire and thank for treating me and my family with such goodness. I will miss his “What did she say?” and Aunt Jeanne yelling back to him!

    I love you all and you are all in my prayers. Although I cannot be there in person, I am thinking of you all.
