Erline loved her life while living in Knox City and she and Harley returned each year as long as they were able. She continued to correspond via telephone and writing until her death.
We appreciate all the love and support she received during her sickness and to us in her death.
I lived with Erline and Harley during my Junior Year of school helping Larry with adjusting to going back and forth to First Grade at Knox City. Being there for a year helps me know that it is easy to love the people so much.
