I was deeply saddened to hear of Erma's passing. She was a dear and gracious woman with many talents. I have fond memories of making music with her several times in Salem and Portland. Rehearsals at her home in Dallas were always something to look forward to. She was a blessing to many and I know that she will be making music in heaven.
