      ____________________

      WILFRED J. ERB In memory of a loving husband, father, Grandpa, and Great-grandpa who passed away one year ago on December 31, 2007. We cried that Monday morning that God did call your name. In life we loved you dearly, in death we do the same. It broke our hearts to lose you, Dad, you did not go alone, for part of us went with you, that day God called you home. You left us peaceful memories. Your love is still our guide. And though we cannot see you, you are always at our side. Our family chain is broken, and nothing seems the same, but as God calls us one by one, the chain will link again. Loved and missed always, Velma, and children; Jeanette and Dave, Margaret and Jim, Paul and Melissa; grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
