Homegoing for my Mother Erma Ricks

To everyone who may not yet have heard the news, Vern's dear mother, Erma Ricks passed away this morning, Vern was by her side during this time, but as you may know he is devastated.

Funeral plans are still being arranged, and any updates regarding locations and times will be posted here.

Erma wished to have a simple funeral, but she knew that her son Vernon would ensure that her arrangements were to the standard that she would expect.  

We have already had numerous emails, texts and messages from people asking how to help, So here it is!

As you are all aware, due to Erma’s illness she incurred expenses from the caretaking in the nursing home and the hospitals –  this has created a huge financial burden and something I am certain we can all do something to help with.
