To the sons of Coke Ehrig-
I'm sorry to say that I didn't know until last week that your dad had passed away. I'm Bruno Ehrig's granddaughter, so a cousin to your dad which makes me your second cousin. I only got to see Coke a few times in my life, but I did know his mom and dad. Aunt Minnie was one of the sweetest ladies I ever knew. I'm sorry to hear about his passing. You are in my thoughts today.

I was on the same crew as Coke at Alcoa for many years. I was in the Laboratory and he was in Digestion. He was a wonderful guy to work with. He was very nice, polite and had a great attitude about his job. He was one of the good guys. Rest in peace Coke! I enjoyed working with you.

To the sons of Mr. Ehrig ~
Charles, Bruce, John & Families ~
Please accept my sympathy at the death of your father. Although I did not know Coke personally, I did know your grandmother Ms. Minnie. She was a good friend of my grandmother, Stella Davis, and lived in Gonzales across the Shiner highway. I know Coke also worked with my uncle, John Davis, at Alcoa in years past. Know that you are in my thoughts.
