It is with the heaviest heart that I tell you our good friend Mike Ehrstein has passed away.


I know that you can only imagine how hard this is going to be on their family. Please, please continue to keep them in your prayers and in your thoughts. I will keep you updated, as I hear, on the funeral arrangements.

My fellow scrapbookers, I am SO SAD today.

God, please watch over Jackie. Give her strength, peace and comfort in the coming days, weeks and months. Please surround her with friends and family that are strong, supportive and positive. Please help to comfort their grandchildren and children at this time.

Jackie, I don't know if you read this or not - but if there is ANYTHING that you need.....groceriers, laundry, lawn mowing, house cleaning, a shoulder, ANYTHING.....please look across the street and call on US. We are SO terribly sorry.

Thoughts and prayers with all the Ehrstein Family. We really enjoyed Mike and Jackie at fall and he was the best Santa Claus giving all the ladies their prizes. Such a talented couple!

I was seated near him and was worried when he didn't come back to CAG. I am so very sorry to hear of his passing. This has been a tragic week :(

My deepest sympathy to the Ehrstein family in this sad time. I cannot image the great loss they are suffering. You are all in my prayers. Scrappers are a group who care deeply for others, and although we may not no each other well, we remember and care for our fellow sister or in this case, brother.
