On April 17, 2014 (Holy Thursday that year), the ashes of Mom and Dad were laid to rest in a common grave at Resurrection Cemetery in Excelsior, Minnesota, just across the street from the home on Christmas Lake where they raised all ten of us. April 17 is my mom’s birthday; she died in 2013 on Holy Thursday, and her funeral Mass was celebrated on April 1, my dad’s birthday. Remembering them both with gratitude and love.
James Joseph Emmer
Mary Packard Emmer

To all of you who joined us in person, despite the snow:
our sincerest thanks!
