I feel very lucky in my life to have Uncle Ernie. He helped our family in numerous ways which I will always be grateful. I can say that many times he was like a Dad for me - I hope he knew how much he meant to me. Though trips to Va were few the last 20+ yrs, Sandy & I were able to visit him for a short time a couple years ago - it was a great time & a lasting memory. I am grateful for the many, many fond memories both he & Aunt Margie provided. Will always miss them and will never forget them.
