Emma was a dear friend during the years she and Ralph spent with us at The Evangelical Meth.Church (Now Cornerstone Community Church). When she moved to Greensboro, my husband and I went to visit her but no one was home that day. I had no way to call since I did not have her new number or her daughters. I loved Emma! During Ralph Illness and death, I would call . Sometimes, I would pray with her on the phone when she was having a hard day, So sorry to hear sad news. My husband passed away in June 2020. He enjoyed our visit with Ralph. The Teagues were two wonderful friends and I cherish those memories. With my love, thoughts and prayers, Virginia Stadler
