    Saying goodbye to a loved one is so difficult. May God give you His peace.

    My memories of my sweet “always smiling ” Aunt Erma will forever be with me! When we had family get togethers at Grandma Buhrmans house, she was always trying to get all us kids in a place mostly in the kitchen with a giant plate of food in front of us. I don’t think she ever sat down herself she was always helping others. She was the sweetest aunt in the world. And to my three cousins I am truly sorry for your loss. The loss of your mom is the hardest for sure. Uncle Clifford your in my thoughts and prayers. Your welcome anytime, dad would love for you to come spend time down here in Oklahoma, we have a spare room! The good ole country air would be good for you! Love you all!
