Dear David and the entire "Benn family",

Erastus has known the Watrous Family for many years. In his younger times he had no problem stopping over for a short visit with my parents which was always welcomed.

Yes, Erastus always did Godly work, always helping someone out. Even lending out equipment to those he truly trusted. He will be missed by many.
Truly a very, very nice man.

With our deepest condolences to you and your entire family.

To the family of Erastus, he was a kind and gentle man who touched many lives & will be missed by all who knew him. Our heartfelt sympathies.

David, Edward, Jeffery and families.
