  9. Still, at times, I can’t believe my beloved brother Ernie has left this life for his heavenly home “on the other side.” Still, at times, it seems like I’ve been in a fog somewhere and his passing isn’t real. And then, at other times, I am griped with the horrible pain of loosing him and my sadness overcomes. During other precious moments, I remember and reflect on the love we shared for each other, our family, extended family and friends, church, school and the times we played together in mud puddles, swam in the creeks, did fishing, baseball, basketball, singing & playing guitars with each other and our families & cousins from multiple states. Our adult years together with our spouses by our sides were so very special & fun too…doing concerts, birthdays, family reunions, fish dinners and, for the year before his stroke, we started each morning with my calling him early & greeting him with “”daddy sing bass”” and he would respond “”and mama sing tener,”” to start our conversation while enjoying our coffee. In short, I could have never ordered a more kind, loving and caring brother and now he is back “home” with our God who shared him with us for this little while. We’ll see him “on the other side” as brother Greg & Jamie reminds us.

  10. I was on the road to visit him last week and while googling his home address found out he had passed. Uncle Ernie was the most loving Uncle in the entire world. He left me with the best childhood Christmas memories a little girl could ever have. I’ll see you on the other side💓. Love Angela
