Our Family And Friends
Return to Top.
- Our daughter Gale married her fiancé Mark September 14, 2019, adding two grandchildren and three great-grandchildren to our family.
- Our granddaughter Kris married her fiancé Tim on May 31, 2018, adding two great-grandchildren to our family.
- Our sixth great-grandchild, Bruce Michael, was born June 1, 2017. He was 18 inches long and weighed 9.5 lbs.
- Ernie's Mom passed away on April 15, 2012. We are thankful for having had such a wonderful Mom. We are especially thankful for the last two years of having her with us. After being told by doctors that they could do no more for her and we should say your final goodbyes, she recovered to the point that she had almost two years of being relatively healthy, completely alert, and happy. We thank God that when the end came it was quick and almost completely suffering-free.
