Woody (Eli) Imberman and I, Mariah, just learned of Terry's death. We are so sorry to hear of his passing. I remember him fondly -- he was so good to my parents, Jane and Abby Imberman. Our thoughts are with you, Dorothy Ernest and with his children.

My sympathy to Dr. Ernest's family. I was most recently his neighbor in Hyde Park but also worked as the social worker assigned to his clinic at the University of Chicago Medical Center. He was one of the most caring and compassionate physicians I ever had the pleasure of working with and I always knew he was there to help me help his patients. May his memory be for a blessing and may those memories sustain his family in the days to come.

Dr. Terry Ernest was especially kind to me and many other students at the University of Chicago. He typically worked all day in the clinic or operating theater serving patients, and then went to the lab to mentor students or put together computer parts for an evening experiment. At the same time, he was working as a Dept. Chairman at the university, running training programs, managing grants, and handling many manuscripts as an editor at IOVS. Somehow, regardless of the hour or circumstance, Dr. Ernest always found time for students from across the Department. He interceded on behalf of students where necessary and he always tried to be a good role model. His kindness will be an enduring legacy. We offer our sincere condolences to the family at this time of loss.
