Our thoughts and prayers are with Linda, David and Molly Thomson. Emma was an extraordinary woman that touched the lives of many people from Johnstown and Washington, DC. Our whole community is mourning this tragic loss with the Thomson family. My heart goes out to the Thomson’s and all those that Emma has touched. Please keep them in your prayers.
