The past is the present for future generations who do not know their history

Some called him Ervin…

but Zac, Anna, and Logan called him Paw. Logan was Paw’s Big Man. And Paw would have loved Taylor Anne equally as well had he known her. Paw was born in Colbert County, Alabama. He lived in Sheffield for many years. He also lived at and loved his little cabin in the woods in Cherokee.

Many will remember Ervin Sledge through his many years of mentoring those who were to become Masons in the area. Many will remember him from Sunday School classes. Many will remember him because he had such an extended family in the Shoals. He was a big man; he left big footprints for Zac and Logan and others to follow.

 But I recall him sitting on a pole, do you? If you do, then please tell about it.
