Ernie (Ernest Whatley Higgins) and I have been friends for fifty years, so we qualify as old friends. You could say Really Old Friends. We joined geezerdom together. In some senses we were soul brothers, but in others totally opposite individuals. Maybe that is what made our friendship long lasting and genuine. We admired the parts of the other that we found lacking in ourselves and cherished the differences that made each of us unique.
Old friends, like Ernie and I were, know our stories. They can attest to the ways we have surmounted past difficulties, while comprehending what still dogs us. Old friends are familiar with such a broad swath of our lives that they prompt a wider perspective. In a real sense, old friends grant us views of ourselves that we cannot obtain on our own. The timeless quality old friends feel upon being reunited derives from having once been young together. As time passes, we notice aspects of old friends we never appreciated before. That is what made the friendship that I had with Ernie so long lasting, strong and so very special.
We all grieve the loss of Ernie. But, to grieve is to experience a relationship. Although it isn't easy, I have truly cherished experiencing all of the aspects of my relationship with Ernie through my grieving.

Although my husband has known Ernie for many years, for almost 5 years, I've had the pleasure of knowing his funny, highly intelligent, bonfire extraordinaire, and Southern Gentleman. He was a witness at our small wedding ceremony and has been like family to all of us Eccles. We will miss him terribly.

Ernie was one of two witnesses at our tiny wedding ceremony. He was a man with a generous heart. Randy and I will always feel blessed to have known this funny, intelligent, Southern Gentleman. We miss you sweet friend.
