From Patrick Jones, Equal
I knew Emma through working with her on Quaker Youth music and drama
projects and supporting her when she had periods of illness. I was only too aware
that for Emma life was both a desperate struggle as well as ecstatically wonderful.
Being of a much older generation than Emma but to be treated as a friend and equal
was very special and she just ignored all the barriers that are so easily set up
between people. I am now feeling very sad particularly for her family who have
supported her through her struggles with such courage and commitment. What a
beautiful person she was, so full of passion, energetic, bright and full of ideas.
