    Ernie Dear, I am forever thankful I was able to spend all the years at GlenFields with you. I loved listening to your stories, your excitement over Santa coming and being “a good boy”, your love of Saturday music and anticipating your newest great grand baby with you. I will miss you Ernie Dear, until we meet again.
