Uncle Ernie you are my hero. I love the way you loved. I love your smiles and your happy heart. You lived the best life in spite of it all. You were convicted and a person of honor commitment and most of all deep love. I love you with all of my heart. What you did and sacrificed will always be remembered. A shining example of the power of love. I have missed you over the years. I remember our long talks on the phone, always building me up making me feel good about myself. Telling me stories about the family and my younger years. Most of all I want to honor your memory and thank you for your devotion to your wife Carol, My Mother Nancy , Cousin Charlotte, My Nanny, Your Children and the list goes on and on, Always helpful always there, a beautiful man of faith. You have left your legacy in your children Billy and Lisa and it shows. that love will follow them and theirs forever.
Best thing I remember and rings in my ears in your laugh, you had the best laugh and smile twinkling eyes.
Love you
Uncle Ernie
