Uncle Ernie, you've always been one of my favorites. Not a visit went by without you giving out huge hugs and telling me how much you loved me and were proud of me. Growing up, camping trips with you were something I looked forward to as the event of the year. They were the best! No matter what, no matter how long went between seeing each other or talking to each other, I knew you were there for me and that always meant the world. You always knew what to do and how to get it done. Without you, a huge part of our family will always be missing, but your generosity and love with always be with us. Your approval and opinion always had my full respect. I love you so much. Thank you for being such an important person in my life.
