A Tribute to a good man named Ernie.
A tribute to my father in law - he has been gone 5 years now - this is not him in this picture - he's below. This is a photo of a 93 year old on the left flying a 1945 plane - and hubs flying the plane he and his dad started when he was little. Ernie I hope you saw it fly!
This is a photo from 2000. My son graduating from medical school. GS was 8 weeks old . Ernie on the left. Hubs holding GS.
This is Ernie's new home - he put himself in a Catholic home and loved it. He sold the house and divided the proceeds to go to his 3 children. Thank you Ernie.
The next is at my son's wedding in 2006.
Ernie passed away in December of 2007.
Now my son has a son that is about my other grandson's age in the second picture. But it is not 4 generations anymore - only 3.
Thank you Ernie for everything.
Thought for the day:
“For what it’s worth: it’s never too late or, in my case, too early to be whoever you want to be. There’s no time limit, stop whenever you want. You can change or stay the same, there are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. And I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet people with a different point of view. I hope you live a life you’re proud of. If you find that you’re not, I hope you have the courage to start all over again.”
F. Scott Fitzgerald (1896-1940);
