    To the Erskine Family: I am so saddened by the recent passing of Ken. Ken was one of the best people I knew. We shared many good times in my “barn” in Midland that I will never forget. Those times together are probably the thing I have missed most after moving from Midland. Ken was such a kind and considerate person. He did so many favors for me and always refused any kind of compensation for what he did. He always looked to find some humor in whatever situation there was, good or bad. I and many others were so fortunate to have had Ken in our lives. He will be sorely missed.
