  1. Carlene – I will always remember your beautiful smile as we celebrated family events the past few years at Mintoville with you and Ernie. Even when I messed up a toast at the table filled with family and loved ones. I could count on you to look at me and smile and cheers. You are deeply missed and loved. Shine bright on us as our new angel in the beauty of the heavens above us. Much love, Jennie

  2. My heart is filled with great memories of you and my Dad. You are in peace now, keep watch over my dad. And your family that u loved so much. 💜

  3. Ernie, keeping you in our thoughts and prayers. So sorry for your loss. Please give me a call if there’s anything I can do or you just want to talk. John and Bea Murphy

  4. We always enjoyed your company at the Minto’s parties. May you rest in peace and watch over your family. Ernie we are always here for you. xo
    With Love, Serena, Eddie, and family.
