Melony and Rick.... Doug and I were so sorry to hear about the passing of your sweet Dad. I always enjoyed my little chats with Ervin when he came to the music in Littleton. He would talk about his garden and of by gone days of hunting and fishing with family members and old friends. I loved that twinkle in his beautiful eyes and that sweet smile of his. I will always remember him with a special fondness. My condolences to his entire family.

My condolences goes out to your family. Times such as these are tough. May you receive strength and encouragement from the “Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort” in your time of need. He also promise that one day we’ll be able to see our love ones again by means of a “resurrection”.
