Clyde Ernie and family. Marc and I are so sorry for your loss. As far back as I can remember, Uncle Ervin was one of the happiest people I knew. Regardless of when you saw him, he had a smile on his face and was quick to make you laugh. I was fortunate to visit with him on our last visit to Virginia with Aunt Bea, Trish and Freda. He will be missed. May God bless you and comfort you at this time.
