I'm so sorry to hear of Erma's passing. She was a wonderful lady. I always enjoyed going to their home with my Mom and Dad on their visits together. Erma always treated me so well and was thoughtful in every way. She as a fine example of how we should live and how we should treat others. May the Lord bless you at this time!

Laurie and Lexie, I am sorry for the loss of Erma a wonderful caring Lady. I remember my last conversation with her, just before she moved to Utah. She had wanted to stay in contact but I was unable to find out where she was in Utah. I will always cherish that last phone call and the memories of Erma, my second Mother. I am sorry, but due to the short notice of her death and Memorial Service, my family is unable to attend. We will keep her in our prayers.

Laurie and Lexie. I am sorry that after my conversation with Erma when she was in the Idaho Falls care center, earlier this year, that she and I were no longer able to stay in contact when she was moved to Utah. Erma said she wished to stay in touch after her move. We had kept in touch all through my life and I will miss talking to her. I will always be grateful for that last conversation. But I am very sorry that I am unable to attend her Memorial because of such short notice. The good times and memories of Erma as my second Mother will always be in my mind. She was a wonderful and caring Lady.

Varr and I were neighbors with your family in Coltman and they were the best of the best. Always kind, considerate, helpful and honest. We both remember Laurie and then Lexie as the shining light of your parents. Your pekinese dog was a pup from Varr's dog & they were exactly alike. Your mother was the epitome of a very gracious woman and was looked up to by us and many others. We loved your family. We were able to visit with your mom a few years ago and get some history of Coltman & it was awesome talking to her. We will never forget her.
