Dear Jorge and Family,
We are heartbroken to learn that Emma passed away. We did not know until today. Jorge and Anthony went to Clarke together and were best friends. We got to spend many times with Emma, Jorge, and met her daughter, mom, and dad. We will keep all of you in our prayers as we understand the heartache and loss you feel. May God continue to give you strength and peace that only he can. Jorge we would love to hear from you!! Anthony always remembers you and your close friendship.
Prayes, thoughts, and Love, Maria, Joe, and Anthony Talarico
