I lived in Grand Rapids when I was a young child, and I knew Erna primarily from family gatherings. My family moved back to Chicago when I was about 10. Still, we visited the Grand Rapids cousins and corresponded with them over many years.

My dad had worked in a furniture factory in GR, and in his spare time he would make wood carvings of owls and other animals, and he left them as gifts for the Grand Rapids cousins. But many years later, it occurred to Erna that my family should be able to enjoy those priceless relics, so she took it upon herself to track down one of them, and she brought it to me in Chicago. I was very touched by that kind and thoughtful gesture, and because of Erna I will forever be able to treasure a squiggly little snake my dad had carved with his own hands--62 years earlier.

With love, affection, and heartfelt sympathy,
Cousin Lois Sorkin
