Emma Unap was one of a kind.  She loved and served her God and in turn loved all people. She was a prayer warrior, an encourager, and a friend! While she has left this earthly home, she now resides with her Heavenly Father and is reunited with her Arthur and countless others.  Not goodbye but see you later my friend! Prayers for God’s greatest comfort and love for her family in the days ahead.
