So sorry to learn of Emma's passing.Please accept my sympathies.The times in my life that I was graced to spend time visiting with her were few and far between, but always such a joy and pleasure because of her wonderful spirit and smile.My father, John (Jack) B. Kain, Sr., was the son of George and Kathryn (Stone) Kain of Hamilton, and was a cousin.
