    Emma Culpepper, adoptive mother of Dolphins QB, dies at 92

    By all accounts, a fine woman..
    RIP Emma


    May 6, 2007

    OCALA, Fla. (AP) -- Emma Culpepper, the adoptive mother of Miami Dolphins quarterback Daunte Culpepper, has died. She was 92.

    Daunte Culpepper told The Associated Press his adoptive mother died at her home in Ocala on Saturday. The cause of death was not immediately known, but Daunte Culpepper said she suffered from Alzheimer's disease.

    He said Emma Culpepper raised as many as 15 children, none of whom was biologically hers.

    "She was basically just on a mission always to help people. Anybody that touched her life, she was always trying to better them," said Daunte Culpepper, who has been slowed by 2005 knee surgery. "She instilled some great values in me and let me know it's not where you're at, but where you're going."

    Her husband, John Culpepper, died in 1977, the year Daunte Culpepper was born. She took him in when he was a day old, Daunte Culpepper said.

    "It was the best thing that happened to me in my whole life," he said. "I never really had a man in my life. She was my mother and my father."
    I'd much rather see the Packers miss the playoffs because of their talent then because of their injuries.

    RIP Emma Culpepper...a shining example to all as to how to live a Christian life.
    I respect her immensely...if only because I don't know if I could ever give as much as she gave to the world.
    May her memory live on as a testament to the beauty of human kindness.
    BANNED OR DEAD...I'LL TAKE EITHER ONE

    I was not happy with Daunte about the way he forced his way out of Minnesota but I know that Emma meant the world to him and I am sad for his loss and the other people that she helped.


    R.I.P Emma you lived a long good life!

    It's a shame to lose classy people such as her.
    Perhaps she will inspire others to share the love.
