SBR Radio will be off air Tuesday March 6 and will resume Thursday March 8th. I am attending my great aunt Celia Emmerich’s funeral in Jackson, MS.
Celia lived a wonderful life full of friends, family, travel and helping others. Much of her life was spent helping the disadvantaged and fighting for civil rights in Mississippi.
I will always remember the great times I had spending summers at her house in Greenwood, MS. She was so full of life and maintained this youthful spirit throughout her entire life.
She was a frequent columnist for her family’s newspapers and was recently working on a book sharing the adventures of her life. She was excited about this book and had spent the last few summers writing in France. Celia’s life was full of adventures, but her true passion was sharing these experiences and helping others in need. She will be deeply missed.
