Mark & Karyn Baily - 7 days ago

Emily & I had an immediate connection when we learned that we were both former Montrealer's. The connection went further when we then realized she knew my cousin Stephen and other members of my family in Montrealer. She had such an amazing sense of humor and had such a positive attitude when speaking about her illness. She always left Karyn and myself with a smile on our faces when we saw her.

Dear Emily's family, I am so sorry for your terrible loss. I went to high school with Emily and had the opportunity to reconnect with her years later when our kids went to Leo Baeck in Toronto. She was was friendly, so kind and really funny! I know there are no words to truly help comfort you all at this time but she is being so fondly remembered by all of her former high school classmates for all of her wonderful qualities. Sending you my deepest sympathies.
