    I did not know Emma personally. I did know her through the chat at the Harmar Bald Eagle nest. She was one of the ‘regulars’ that I got to know and trust there. She was very knowledgeable and was quite a pleasure to talk to. Her presence will continue to be missed on the chat.

  3. Chuck & I were so sorry to hear of Emma’s passing. She was a bright happy lady & we will miss her. So sorry for your loss.
