My condolences to the family, but we rejoice that Erv knew his Lord and Savior, and that he leaves for us to remember a remarkable life of public service. I had the privilege of knowing him when he was the Postal Inspector and again later, when he was an investigator for the Prosecuting Attorney's office. A true gentleman.
