Angela and Eddy: I am your cousin Pat Chatelain Ervin. I am so sorry for your loss. I wanted to share some things about your Dad. When Mom first went into the nursing home, your dad and I would talk by phone about her condition and how we were handling her affairs. He was concerned about her but I assured him that we were looking after her and that put his mind at ease I think. After that he would call now and then to chat. He told me once that he thought he was getting Alzheimers, but he seemed to be at peace with it. I know that he is now reunited with all of his family who went to God before him. He was loved and will be greatly missed. God Bless you all. Pat Chatelain Ervin, Vicksburg, MS
