Uncle Ernest, you have touched our lives in so many ways. Fred and I will forever be grateful for the lessons in life you blessed us with as a young couple. You had faith in us when no one else did. You gave us love and hope to continue our journey and through that a new generation was created. You not only showed us how to love and care for each other and others but you lead us by example. With our love , we say goodbye , only until we meet again.
