I forgot to say that your dad made our wedding cake also and it was beautiful. That was 57 years ago this week. Arletta & Ralph Trejo

I accidentally ran across Erv's obituary. I worked for your mom and dad at Bon Ton when I was in high school. I don't know if you remember me, but I babysat with you and John Bilitz a couple times instead of working at the bakery. I really enjoyed working at the bakery and loved your mom and dad. I learned so much from them. It was actually my first job, so I got a good start. My condolences to you and the whole family. Arletta (Kuehl) Trejo from Beaver Dam
