Emily Jones Shrader -- 1975-2008

I cannot imagine, having had none of my own, what it must be like to bury one's child, except that it could only be the worst tragedy possible.

Tom Jones, who is as much a part of the Memphis landscape as Overton Park and Poplar Avenue, and of course, who blogs at Smart City Memphis, lost his daughter, Emily Jones Schrader, to cancer at the way-too-young age of 32 this past Friday.  He has written a beautiful tribute to her at SCM, and you should read it.

We here at the Cracker offer our deepest condolences to Tom and his family, and hope that you will as well.
