Dear Family and Friends,

Thank you for all the love, support and prayers that we have received since the passing of our beloved Emery.

We have been overwhelmed by everyone's love for Emery. His presence on this earth is everlasting. He was very purposeful in his living and the impact that he had on mother earth. There was beauty everywhere and he taught us to look for it, appreciate it, and be engaged in the moment. His greatest gift to Ale and me was teaching us to veer off the beaten path, take a chance, and enjoy the beauty that seemed to be created just for you.

We have established a memorial fund in Emery's honor with Austin Community Foundation. Our hope is to first purchase a bench for Pease Park in his memory. Pease Park is a special place for our family. We have fond memories of playing with Lady, riding our bikes and taking mid-morning walks. The hope of the bench is to encourage you all to take a moment to engage in the beauty that exists everywhere and create your own memories.

Donations to the Emery Buchner Memorial Fund can be made through the Austin Community Foundation. This will be a living fund to support ongoing community needs that were important to Emery.
