Dave, You and your family have my sympathy over the loss of your father. Now his soul is at rest in the bosom of the Lord with the body to follow at a later date.

Dear Patsy, David and family members we have not met, we were saddened to hear of Erv's passing. We met Erv when we joined the Deep Creek Ranch Association. Though we didn't see each other much throughout the years, the times we did manage to get together either at the association meetings or up on the ranch were cherished. He always made us laugh and to this day we wonder how he seemed to be the only one to take a deer off the ranch each year. And usually on the last day...he had an in somewhere!Our heartfelt thoughts are with you all during this sad time. May you find peace and solace in his memory, we know he will be greatly missed by his family and many friends.

Dear Mrs Cunningham. I worked with LeRoy at the mill from the late '60's or early '70's until the time of his retirement. He was in the milling department and I was the labortory manager. If he ever showed you a toy machine that he got the night of his retirement party called "The Ervin L. Cunningham Milling Machine", well I was the guy who built it. I always liked Roy, he was a true gentleman and well as being a kind person.My wife Marlene passed away in July after 50 yours together so I can relate to your pain.Sincerely, Michael Welsh
