Please accept my condolences on the loss of Mrs. Ernestine. I am one of your many cousins on the Lavigne side of the family. I am Cindy Heitman-Fletcher, daughter of William Ball Heitman, who was Ernestine's first cousin. My grandmother, Esther Lavigne Heitman, and Ursulla Lavigne Gates were sisters. I remember meeting Uncle Des as a child, and Grandma often spoke of Aunt Ursulla. I also knew since childhood Mrs. Ernestine's brother, Dotsy Gates, truly a well-remembered figure in Ponchatoula.
