“Fly high Uncle Ernie. We are so very blessed we got to spend a little bit of life with each other. You made me feel I’ve known you my whole life. I’ve never felt this comfortable with anyone other than my own father. Say hello to your brothers Ed and Robert for me. I’ll be waiting my turn later on. You are loved!!”
