A. Felscher Jr.
June 12 1989
Note: a close
friend of the deceased relates that
Erwin did indeed have "Gay and Proud" on his headstone.
He had it done ahead of time and was quite pleased with
it, had taken a photo of it and showed it to anyone who
visited him. But some time after the burial his family had
the saying removed from the scroll on the stone.
How very sad they could not honor one of his last wishes.
