Eleanor, So sorry for your loss of Ernie. I am so glad for the many good times we shared on the Senior bus trips, many good memories of both of you. You helped make those trips so much fun. God Bless you and your family.

I am so sorry for your loss of Ernie. I have fond memories of both of you on our senior bus trips. You helped make then good times. God bless you and your family.

Eleanor - We'll always remember the great times we had with "E" and "E"! You two were more than family to us, we felt a genuine friendship. It was such a treat when our chauffeur "James" took us around Wooster and the surrounding countryside acquainting us with the local culture and businesses. We remember the time Ernie requested a jar of picadilly relish - he wasn't able to go on one of our sightseeing trips. We looked and looked and f-i-n-a-l-l-y found one - he was sooooo pleased. We will treasure these memories and trust that they and others will sustain you.

I am so sorry Aunt Eleanor about Uncle Ernie. He was always such a character. I will miss him very much. I really enjoyed our trip out there after my mom died in 2006 and going to Amish Country. We want to come back soon to see you when you are ready. Love you Aunt Eleanor. Love, Kathi
