With great sorrow I am sending sincere sympathy to the family of my dear friend, Erskine. He will be missed by me, because for several years, he has called me inquiring about my health often. He always listened to my list of things gone wrong in my life and health situations. I never heard him com-plain, he was always cheering me up. I know he was a good caretaker for his family and friends, and I know now he can rest in the arms of the ultimate caretaker, Jesus Christ. Rest in peace, my friend I am going to miss you!

My friend Erskine

Shared by Mildred Buchanan on February 10, 2021
This is just an after thought I had today knowing this was the day for his funeral.  I wanted his family to know what a joy it was to know Erskine.  He always made me laugh, he would call me, and in that comical way that only he could pull off, he'd say " Get out that bed girl and shake a leg" or sometimes he would say, " I thought I smelled fried chicken, what you cooking girl?"  He knew he could make anybody laugh.  I would call him about my arthritis or whatever was going on in my life, and it was often about health issues.  But down thru the years, I don't remember Erskine ever complaining .  He always seemed happy.   I know it was a honor to know him, and  in my 83 years on this earth I can truthfully say, " I have never met anyone that I admired more than Ples Erskine Lewis, and I am going to miss our phone conversations".  Sincerely, Mildred Buchanan
