    Erskine Bailey was an anchor block in his community ,if you needed help ,advice ,or just someone to talk to he was always there any hour of the day ! Most of all Erskine Bailey was always the same caring ,helpful person any time you saw him .Erskine Bailey was by far the Hardest working man in this part of the country and cared for his family to great lengths till the very end , fighting for his life through much illness and trials in his life ! He will be missed greatly however you knew him as Erskine ,Mr Bailey ,Doc , or Sarge we will all miss him but know he is now at PEACE

    Sorry to learn of your loss. I remember the Bailey renunions. Always was good to catch up and enjoy family. I think our next generation will miss much as this custom dies.
    Inez, so glad you had so many years. I lost my Howard after only 35, but they were wonderful years!
    God bless all of you.
    Sincerely,
    Brenda
