Soo many times over the years... Our friends and loved ones have seemed to just quietly slip away at the crack of dawn.... I pray that the departure was well timed and that God was waiting at the finish line... I will miss my old friend... always waiting with a good cup of coffee and a dry sense of humor... R. I. P.

Our hearts and prayers are with all who loved and knew Erwin. Erwin was a funny, generous, compassionate and reliable man who will be missed by us and many, many others that were blessed to share time with him. You could always count on him to have a hot cup of coffee, friendly welcome and good joke for old friends and strangers alike. May we all feel comfort knowing he is at peace. Thank you for brightening our lives with your uplifting spirit...we love you, Erwin!

Condolences to the family.
Erwin ALWAYS made himself available when there was a job to be done. Coffee on the porch was one of the bright spots in my life.
His suffering has ended and he will live on in the hearts of myself and others.
