    We send you our sincere sympathy. Emilie sent thousands of gifts to the students of Goodnews Bay and Platinum,Alaska, and their families, over many years. Her kindness enhanced the lives of all of the families, and she will never be forgotten. She was one of a kind, the most loving and generous person.
