  2. Dear Emery Family,
    I am so sorry to have read of your loss; please accept my sincere condolences. Something that I have personally found to be of great comfort are the thoughts expressed at John 5:28, 29 as well as Revelation 21:4. In these verses, we find a wonderful hope for the future of being reunited with our loved ones upon the earth the way it was originally intended–free from sickness, suffering, and death. Knowing this has comforted me greatly and it is my sincere hope that these thoughts comfort your family as well. Again I am so sorry for your loss.

  3. On behalf of my deceased grandparents, Stella & William Krause of Boyertown, and my deceased parents, Florence (Krause) & Edmond Gallino of Pottstown, I wanted to express our sincere sympathy on the passing of Arthur Emery. I myself remember him when he was a butcher for Johnson’s Grocery Store on North Reading Avenue in Boyertown on or around 1950 or so, when my parents lived in Boyertown near the Store. I will always remember Arthur’s smile and friendly greetings when we visited the Store so many years ago. Our thoughts and prayers are with your family.

    Dennis & Linda Gallino
