Daughter tells of her father's words for his wife

ST James Anglican Church was filled to capacity as the community came together to pay tribute and give thanks for the lives of David and Carol Emert.

Determined to make the day a celebration, their children each took turns to tell their stories, speak of their work, and their love of the community.

In this snippet from the eulogy, daughter Lisa Hodgson tells the crowd about one of the requests David had made for his own funeral, and the words he wanted to leave to tell his wife.
