"There are numerous times a day Erna comes to mind and sometimes it is joyful remembering things we have done together and what she has meant to me, at  other times it is a deep pain at not being able to pick up the phone and talk to her or share experiences with her.  Some day we will be able to do that again in person, now it is in thought!  Love always!"

"Spent this special day in Germany visiting with our brother and reminisced about Erna and our good times together on previous visits to Germany.  I miss Erna dearly, she was my link to my childhood, to my home, to my heritage.  There isn't a day she does not come to mind and I will be forever grateful for the influence she had on me and my family."

"Dear Fred,
I've been trying to come up with the right words, but there aren't any to describe the impact you and Erna have had on me. Erna was one of the most positive people I have ever known and the more I got to know you both, the more awareness there was of being in the presence of great and loving souls, It was an honor, privilege and pleasure to get to know the two of you.  I treasure the memory of our trip to Edgecombe County for the Williford reunion. Bless you, Fred--sending prayers for God's comfort and peace to surround you as you go through this passage."

May all her family be comforted and blessed."

"Will miss you greatly, my dear sister.  But the wonderful memories of times spent together will always be with me.  You were the most unconditional loving, non judgmental, loyal sister anyone could ask for.  The absolute favorite aunt of our children. Thank you for always being there for me and my family."
