To avoid reinventing the wheel - I won't be repeating most of the Ehrichs photos in Bob's tribute that are already shown in the tribute to his first cousin, once removed, Dorothy (Ehrichs) Kusel...but I will show a couple of the Ehrichs ancestral photos again in Bob's tribute.

Bob was in the acute center of the Manning Hospital the same time mother was there - Bob's room just to the south.
The night before Bob passed away, I had just finished visiting with mother and as I was walking by Bob's room to go home, I noticed he heard me and looked my way so I walked in and visited with him a little bit. I don't know if he knew who I was but he was able to respond quite well.
I was glad to be able to visit with him one last time before he passed away...he was always a fun guy to visit with.
He and his wife, Carol, also attended many of the Ehrichs funerals which I know mother always appreciated.
