My sympathies to Erma´s family. I am just now learning this sorrowful news. I met Erma through Circle of Friends. I was fortunate to be with her at three of our quilting retreats. She was my "Little Sister" one year. Gifts given each month. Such a pleasure and so much fun. She was fabulous and made me the most beautiful Christmas quilt that I cherish. And not to forget the jean bag with embroidered State of Texas. She was a beautiful women inside and out. She has been greatly missed from the last few retreats. My heart goes out to the family and know she is very much missed by y´all.
