Personal note from Cathy, beloved wife of Ernie
We’ve had some people inquiring into more details about Ernie’s life as well services and or how they can help. The following is being written by Cathy. (This was written shortly after his passing.)
Ernie and I both did not want any public service when we discussed our lives in the past. I encourage any groups of his friends or relatives or any individuals to offer prayers in their own way such as a mass which some Catholics do automatically. Anything from your heart is going to be fine with all of us. The Minnesota people are going to be having a small celebration on Ernie’s birthday in August. Shortly thereafter Cathy’s siblings are having a reunion that has been planned for two years. Ernie has always enjoyed that so there will be a memorial service in the Black Hills area where the reunion is being held. We will share pictures from that but the gist is that we will show movie clips from our home videos picturing all of us and our visits through the years. It will be a fun hour of laughter and listening to some of Ernie’s own music.
