  3. Ernie,
    I remember you told me you were going to walk out of MDA healed.
    I thought that just might happen. I wish it had happened.
    You and I talked one time and you said if you pass before me you would come visit me in my dreams with our uncle Raymond. I am going to hold you to that.
    And, please, when you see Marilu tell her to visit me often until I am back with her and all of you.
    Love you,

    David Beard

  6. Ernie, I remember the fluke of meeting your folks in the blacks, greenhouse. Hired you mom to be the bookkeeper. She discovered I lived at the viva apartments #181 and told you and here you came to visit!

    That was probably 1976 and you and I were dear friends ever since!

    We all had a ball at the apartment and we got Mary Lou hooked up with David!

    The stories we told and fun we had!

    You were always loved by us and Annie and peg and Robert. You will and are missed! But in glory now!
