Our family will always remember "Ernie" for the many kindnesses he shared with us during the time of his friendship with Grace, our Mother. He was there for us while we lost her, back in 1998 & has kept in touch since. We loved hearing a voice mail greeting from Erwin - he would tell us all kinds of news and then apologize for "rambling on!" We'd listen to his messages over & over, loving that he took the time to keep in touch. When he did Mary's flowers at St. Joe's, he would often place flowers at Grace's for us. A sweet, thoughtful man, who served his country well. He was a good story-teller & we loved to hear of his experiences from WWII. We'll miss you Ernie! Sending love to Judy, Sarah & your family. Sarah, he often spoke of you & was so proud of you!
