Erma who was affectionately known as "Granna" to many; always had an "I'll help you with my last dime" type of spirit about her. If you were in need of a little help, food, money, or just needed a prayer & a hug, she was always willing & most of the time you didn't even have to ask. She loved people & seemed to make people laugh everywhere she went. She enjoyed good conversation & always picked up the phone to many to just say I'm thinking about you & are you okay?
