My deepest sympathies over the loss of Erna. No person can ever prepare themselves for the feelings of loss that can come when our loved ones leave us. Please know that these feelings are temporary and will soon be replaced with wonderful and happy memories. The comfort from the scriptures can help during this difficult time. John 5:28,29 "for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life." Knowing that we can see our loved ones again in a future paradise free from the effects of ill health and suffering certainly warms our heart. Please accept my deepest sympathies. Dave

I used to work for Dr. Cooper and had many interesting conversations with Erna when she came into the office. She Is one of the patients I often wondered about after I quit working at the office. I am sorry for your loss.

To the family of Art and Erna. I have lots of memories of your parents while growing up and attending Trinity Lutheran Church here in Sidney. I am so sorry for your loss. You could always count on them both being ready to serve and helping out. I bet Jesus met her at the gate welcoming her like a dear old friend that she was!! God Bless Her....
