Sending love and sympathy to Erle Lynne's family.  We fondly remember the wonderful couples bible study we had together when all our children were young. It was so much fun to get together and contribute to have a meal before our study. The companionship and sharing of God's word still rests within our hearts.  Erle Lynne's glowing personality and loving care for those around her will never be forgotten!

Erle Lynne you were an inspiration to all who knew you and the brave battle you waged.  The encouragement you gave to our sister, Sheila Fisher, was greatly felt by her and us as we watched her.  May the two of you enjoy being reunited again.  God Bless you and your family.
