Erich was my cousin. We never saw very much of each other. He was the oldest grandchild of Florence Foss and I was the youngest. And he didn't often come in with his mother from the ranch when we visited Grandma, so our interactions were few and far between. Nevertheless, I think of him fondly. He was a very kind, gentle, hard-working countryman who lived a simple and quiet life. Rest in peace, Erich.

Your cousin Tim (Randolph) Robinson
