Memories Timeline


  1. Emmalean joined the Women’s Prayer Line on November 18, 2018. A small group of twelve women, most who live in Texas, who pray together Monday through Friday (including holidays) at 6:30 a.m. Invited to join the group by her sister-in-law Margaret, Emmalean initially felt she needed a wake up call to make sure she didn’t miss. But it wasn’t long after that she no longer needed anyone to call her because she made sure she set her alarm on her phone. We often laughed with her when she would admit dialing in on Saturday or Sunday only to discover that she was the only one on the line. For over a year she was faithful and consistent to call in every morning, even up to Wednesday, December 19th, three days before God called her home.
    We are going to miss her dearly. she would softly clear her throat each morning and then announce that she was on the line. Emmalean loved her entire family and often ask that we keep her family in our prayers…but her daily prayer was for her husband Sam and her two sons. she even had us praying that she would get to see her sons before the end of the year. We all celebrated with her when they came home to see her at thanksgiving. she desired that each of them would have a closer walk with God.
    It was because of our sister Emmalean that we prayed for KeKe, Brian, Brittany, Keisha and her two children, Jackie, Ernest and the entire staff at the South Point Healthcare Center. So as the group will continue to pray together daily, we will always remember to pray for her husband Sam, her two sons Sam and Kevin, and for all those names that she called out on a daily basis.
    We are so thankful to have been a part of Emmalean’s life and it is our prayer that god will comfort, strengthen, heal, and encourage you today and the days to come.

  2. Emmalean and Sam Jay have been in my life for over 50 years. They were Aunt and Uncle sent by God to me and a lot of the kids in the neighborhood on 29th and Townsend. Life was simple then and they were part of the joy in our lives.
    I can remember the close bond between Emmalean, my mother , Gloria, and Sandra Rhodes. They were truly spiritual sisters and they referred to each other as “Sister”.
    I get a warm feeling from the memories and now that I am older, I realize what a special and magical time it was. Emmalean was loved and she will be missed on this side, but she is home with the Father and the “Sisters” are together again.

  3. So sorry for your loss. She was a very special friend that I loved dearly. Great memories I will always cherish, especially at Booker T, Washington playing basketball. We had a great team. Not only that, we went to UIL in typing and spelling. I just talked to her a few months ago and shared a lot of laughs. I just thank God she was in my life. To God Be The Glory. Rest in Peace My Dear Friend. Sam I will keep you and your family in my prayers. Frances Fuller Hafford
