Heaven has truly gained another Angel! Miss Erma taught me many years ago in Sunday School at Marbledale and she was always there for all "her kids" no matter what. She was a blessing to everyone she came in contact with telling them about the Lord and what he has done for her. R.I.P Miss Erma! You will be truly missed! I Love You!

We have wonderful memories of Miss Erma. She was a sweet and gentle lady who generously shared kind words and sweet smiles on a daily basis. We will miss her presence here on earth; however, we know that her homecoming was one of great celebration in Heaven. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family.
Sincerely,
Debra and Helen Cline

It was a great honor for Kim & I to meet Miss Erma and spend some time with her. I loved listening to her stories about growing up. We were thrilled to hear she was moved and placed in the loving care of Tawana and Anthony. Erma touched the hearts of everyone she met. May she Rest In Peace.
