    My love to all Ernest’s family. He was such a wonderful person and friend AND canasta player. I cherish the time we all had together.

    I am in AZ all next week so I won’t be able to be there on Monday.

    Thinking of his new journey with the Lord.

    I can’t count the number of canasta games I’ve played with Ernest—my home—his home—and elsewhere. He liked my egg salad sandwiches (he said!) and I had been looking for a date to fix lunch and play canasta. He will be missed a lot by me!
