Jr's funeral

13 years ago Clarence (Jr.) and I began the journey of his lung disease. The journey has finally ended today, March 24, 2018 at 8:30 a.m. It all started when we met on a blind date, 55 years ago.  At the end of the date he told his cousin "that's the girl I'm going to married one day" and as it turned out, he became the love of my life and entire world.  One short year later, we became husband and wife. As a result of this marriage, we were lucky enough to be blessed with three beautiful children Jim, Scott, and Julie.  Clarence worked for Speedway Disposal for 40 years and Waste Management for 5 years. As his sickness took over, he had to retire early at the age of 62. Ever since retirement, Clarence's life has revolved around his family and sickness. Until the end,  he was a strong, courageous, humble, and loving man. 
        This GoFundMe will be focused on relieving the financial stress of my husbands passing.  Any donations will eternally be remembered and appreciated by the Emmons family and friends. I, Judy Emmons,  will be solely responsible for both financial responsibility and donations.
