Erskine Smith - A True Storyteller

ErskineSmithx3.jpgErskine Smith passed away Saturday at the age of 67. Many people are sharing stories about Erskine and it's so appropriate; he was so many things and among them, a true storyteller.

We send our deepest condolences to his wife Pat and their children Emily and Jonathan.
