Marty and Nancy Lynn, I am so sorry for your loss. Mary Emma was my favorite customer when I worked in the Bank of Southside. She came every week to get money for her weekly expenses and we would talk. She loved you both so very much and would share that with me. She was a strong woman and loved her town's history especially her home she grew up in. I will miss her strong will and determination. My sincere condolences to your family.
