    Lana, please accept my condolences on your great loss. Erwin was dear to so many of us. Erwin was always what I thought of as a "Texas Gentleman." It's an elite group, and fairly small. And now it's smaller. Erwin always made a difference in people's lives, he loved his country and God and he made the world a better place. Not everyone can say that, but Erwin could.
