Our thoughts are with you all. Erling had a strong work ethic all his life. He was fortunate to be able to continue as long as he did: with the help of his son-in- laws. Elaine and Eleanor: you were very devoted to your Dad and will miss his smile and his sense of humour.
Take care.

I got to know Erling working in Manitowaning a few years ago. I don't think you could find a nicer man to speak to.

My deepest condolences to the family.
