Don & I are living in Fredericksburg VA now so will not be able to attend service. Clint is an attorney in Washington DC & lives in Fairfax VA with his wife & 18 month old daughter. We all loved Erna . She was such a sweet good hearted lady. Her & mom were such good friends. She watched out for mom so lovingly as mom got older. I’m so thankful mom had her next door. I know you will miss her greatly. She truly put others before herself.

We met Erna through her daughter, Annie, who worked with Ken. We needed a babysitter for our infant daughter, Erin, so I could return to work. We loved Erna from the first moment we met her and asked her to watch our infant daughter and sometimes our 3 year old son, who was her granddaughter, Shanna's age. She was wonderful with our children and a good friend to us. Although we moved away, we have stayed in touch through Christmas cards and she has always held a special place in our hearts. We will always have fond memories of her. She was one in a million. Rest in peace dear Erna.
