I used to babysit Erland's daughter, Isabella. I remember how Isabella's face would light up when she heard her father's car pull in the driveway when he got home from work. She and Erland had such a special bond. He was such a kind man and he loved his wife and daughter more than anything. I am so fortunate that I was able to know Erland and his family. He is truly missed.

To the Hawkins family ... I have just learned about Erland's passing and am so sorry for your loss ... I worked with Erland at Delta when we were both International In-Flight Service Operational Supervisors ... he was a delightful individual and a very good Supervisor who had great compassion for those he worked with and for ... he will truly be missed!

I am truly saddened to hear of Erland's passing. I served with him in the Japan Kobe mission in 1980. I have tried to contact him several times over the years, but was always unsuccessful until now when to my shock I find his obituary. I was Erland's first companion in the mission field and have many fond memories of walking the streets of Nishiwaki Japan with him and teaching some wonderful people. He was an incredible person and a blast to work with! He will truly be missed, I am sure.

Thanks for the memories. I was lucky to have met Erland after 9/11 when the world was in chaos. Erland had a calming way about him that just brought tranquility to those around him. My first memories included Erland and Anne making many trips to Guatemala and how they wanted to share the love they had. Isabella you are the result of that love and are blessed to have them as your parents. The joy they found with you is exceptional. Erland would get the same gleam in his eye every time he talked about Isabella, Trevor and Nathan. He was so proud of his children. I loved getting into serious dicussions with Erland because he seemed to want to soak up as much information on a subject as he could. The discussions were always thoughtful and when political in nature, quite humorous. I imagine he is up there now having a discussion with St. Peter. Erland, we will miss your smile and laughter but not the way you touched our hearts --you will always be there. God's speed my friend.

Anne, Isabella, Trevor, and Nathan, my heart is heavy with grief over the loss of a dear friend and former coworker, who gave nothing but an abundance of support, love, kindness, and humor to all who were graced with his presence in their lives, even if only for a moment in time! He was inspirational to me in personal life, and in my work efforts. He left me with many positive thoughts and pursuits with his encouraging words! I also had so many fun times with him in Portland, and when we all went dancing,he made me feel like I had pretty feet, even though they really were ugly duck feet!! And oh, how his funny ways and energy could make me laugh!!! I most admired his heart!! His love for his family shown through in every breath and word he spoke!! Loved my Erland friend, and will always be grateful for God's gift of his friendship in my life!! Blessings to all of you, that your hearts will fill with comfort knowing he was amazing to all!!
