Ernie was a very special cousin to me. When his parents passed away, my mom who was sister to Ernies dad, wanted to adopt him but his grandparents took him and did a great job. we lost touch many many years ago and we had been trying to find him.My daughter actually found him on the internet and we finally got to meet and it was wonderful. We got to spend quite a bit of time with Ernie and LaWanna through the years and it was like we had known each other for years. I am going to miss him terribly but will always treasure the time that we did have together. Rest in peace, Cuz
