I went to school with Erskine. He was always a friendly person and would help with anything. He was quiet and always so respectful of everyone. The year's passed and I continued to see Erskin around differed places in Wadesboro. He never changed from school days to now! Always, the same kind man I knew from our school days. I will miss serng him around! To the family I know you all will miss him. You are in my prayers.

Dear Family,
I am so deeply sorry for the loss of Uncle Erskine. He was truly one of the most selfless and giving people on this Earth. From the time I started dating Stan, Erskine always made me feel like I was part of his family. Every time I would see him, he had a loving squeeze and a "How are you doin' Hun?" Uncle Erskine was just a pleasurable person to be around and he always had time to help when you needed it. Later, when Stan and I married, we had the pleasure of living in the same driveway with Erskine and Judy. Our Dalmatians would frequently go and visit and then when we would call for them, Erskine would kindly let us know they were there. Shortly thereafter, Stan and I had three amazing children and Uncle Erskine became an Uncle to them, just like he had been to me and Stan. On our daily walks to the mailbox, we would stop by and talk to Erskine and Judy and it would make our day. Erskine was the kind of person who I do not recall ever doing anything for himself. If you ever asked him what he was doing, you would always get an answer that involved him doing something for someone else. When we moved from Lilesville, leaving Erskine and Judy and the comfort of having them so close was definitely one of the toughest parts. It had been so wonderful to live next to family who truly would help with anything. As life moved on, we didn't see Erskine as much. We moved away and life kept spinning by; as it does more and more each day. But, who could be so lucky and blessed to say that they had the most amazing Uncle at a time in their lives just starting out and raising a family! We can surely say that! I will never forget the times he helped with my car or helped me with something when Stan wasn't home. Most of all though, I will long for that little side hug and that "How are you doin' Hun?" I am sure I will be blessed enough to receive that again one fine day on high! I love you Uncle Erskine! Thank you for being so awesome to me, Stan, and the kids. You are surely enjoying your time in Heaven! You earned that as the most loving, hard working, and selfless man! Until we meet again! God Bless you to all of his family and friends! He was definitely a gift to this world!
