  1. Our deepest condolences Sis. Aimee to your siblings and to your whole family! We will truly miss our dear mommy Emma! We had fond memories of her for so many years! Thank you mommy Emma for your loving service to your family and extending that service to us, the Dolars! We will miss your kindness and your scrumptious food you always prepare for us when we visit your home in Wauconda! I’m glad I saw you one last time when we visited IL in the summer of 2022. You will be missed. Love and prayers, the Dolars

  2. Our deep sympathies to the family of our cousin
    Emma. I regret very much not having met her again for many years (having lived in a different country).but remember her kindness and generosity as did her own mother to Auring’s family. Malabon will always be special.

    GOD our FATHER,
    Your power brings us to birth,
    Your providence guides our lives,
    and by Your command
    we return to dust.

    to have compassion on
    the soul of Your beloved,
    Your faithful daughter…

    We implore YOU,
    Who had freed her
    from the perils of this mortal life,
    to restore her
    to everlasting salvation.

    Lord GOD , we also lift to YOU
    everyone in her loving family
    whom she had left behind.

    Console them O LORD and
    strengthen and unite them
    in their faith
    on Your promise of eternal bliss
    that their beloved
    may now be rejoicing
    in Your kingdom
    and singing Your praise
    with all the blessed in Heaven.

    May she Rest in God’s love&peace.
    May His perpetual light
    shine on her forever.

    Through Christ, our LORD.


    Sharing your loss, Sis. Aimee & family.
    I have requested a holy mass intention for your Mama Emma’s eternal repose at Queen of All Saints Church, Chicago on December 09 at 5pm.
