I met Emily through Mark Dixon.  We celebrated Thanksgiving at her home one year. The next night we wen to a cool Italian restaurant in Charleston.  The next year we celebrate Christmas dinner with her.  She showed us some cool restaurants.  She was always, smiling and positive.  It was a joy to be around Emily.  We already miss her.
