    To Erv’s Children and Grandchildren.
    We are sending prayers your way as you deal with the loss of your father and grandfather. Erv was a very patient mentor to me as a new woodcarver. We spent time together and talked on the phone. Time is precious. Remember him with love and know that God is with you at this time.
