    My sympathy to all of the extended Erhartic family. Mrs. Erhartic/Sabatino was fortunate to have been surrounded by all of you over these last several years, staying at Daria’s where she could spend time with Luke and Zackery, and having Sunday dinners at Michael’s. It’s great that the grandchildren all knew her well. When I think of Lillian, I remember her always getting all dressed up/made up and I got a kick out of Daria’s stories about her insisting on having a little dessert….after EACH meal. Love to you all, Laura Perry

    Although I never met Lillian personally I feel like I knew her from all the wonderful and funny stories told by Phil. When Phil spoke about her it was always with love, warmth and admiration for his mother. And I learned from these stories that she had a great sense of humor and cared greatly for others, not just her family, but also with her volunteer work.

    You can usually learn a lot about a person by the children they raised. I’ve been a member of Phil’s van family for more than 20 years and have heard enough to know that she raised caring and loving children. My condolences go out to all those children and their families as I am sure she will leave a big whole in their lives.

    Rest now, Lillian. I know you will always be watching over them and will still hear wonderful stories from Phil.
