This is a beautiful and generous way to honor Emily and the big-hearted intellectual/academic that she was. Year after year you truly leave a legacy of love and care and are a wonderful example to all of us. It is so touching to be part of this community over time, see the children grow and develop as life washes over us all. On behalf of the whole picture, and everyone in it, thank you.
