It breaks my heart to see him go. But I know he is in a better place and is with family. I will truly miss him. I will not forget the memories we have made. The long talks and and laughters we shared. The events that he came to for me and my siblings, he was there for everything. Even during and after my father passing he was still there. I loved and thank him every time. Uncle Emile was a very great person. A man with a heart of gold. And to my family I pray god gives you the strength and peace to get through this I love you all.. And I love you Uncle Emile

I remember Uncle Emile ever since I was a little girl. His smile & laugh was unforgettable! Although distance has a way of dividing relationships with others, I’m grateful to have had the opportunity to see and visit with you & the family a few months ago! The last memory I will have of you is the picture I took of you smiling. Mama, Patrick, Patrice, Renee, Lil Emile, Cheryl, & Mark you all are in my prayers! I Love You All! My Deepest Sympathy, Sierra “SANDY” Papillion Stevens

To my family, I never really visited Uncle Emile much but when he came around he always made us smile whether it was from kind words or a silly joke. He always wore a smile. My prayers are with the entire family at this time. Love you uncle Emile. You will truly be missed! Your niece, Angela
