I would like to extend condolences to my great uncle's family. I loved visiting with him and hearing his stories! He had a sense of humor that I won't forget. My dad didn't get to visit much. However, on our last trip this past November, we got to visit with him at his home. I took a picture of him and my dad with their Korea and Vietnam hats on. We are so glad we took time to make that stop. Little did we know it would be the last time we would see him.
Rest in peace, Uncle Ernest! We shall see you again!!
