  7. Jean & Family,
    We are so sorry about Ernie. He was a wonderful man full of humor & life. Our older children still talk about sitting in front of our livingroom window on 13th street looking across the street into your familyroom at your big screen tv(watching movies without the sound) Its one of their favorite childhood memories. May he rest in peace and may you all be comforted at this time. Tom & Karen
