Ernie, I will miss your smile and your sense of humor! I pray God will look after your family and we will all be together one fine day in Glory!!

Moving from Hamilton to Somerville it became easy to be Ernie's friend. We were in the 7th grade. Baseball, basketball, swimming in the creek it seemed like every day. Although we had not seen one another for quite awhile I will always remember those good days. Our thoughts and prayers to you Linda and your family. Jack and Merry DePew
