I sure do miss the good ole days, the gatherings that we had at Grandpa & Grandma Macik's house in Snook. Also at Uncle Stanley & Aunt Evelyn's house in Bryan. The BBQ and fixings with all the stories and jokes. Plus some of the Macik Reunions at the SPJST Hall that we were able to attend. Sending prayers to the family. Love y'all!

Condolences and Prayers sent to the Jeske Family. I will miss the waves from Ernest on my way home. No matter what He was doing he would throw up that arm and wave. All the years I've known Ernest there's No one that could get a whole room laughing like he could. He had that art in him. Being his jokes, impersonating people, his made up songs, or the stories he would tell. You would laugh so hard he would have you cryin! If you ever went to one of his fish Fry's. You would agree with me he cooked the best catfish you could find around and a lot of it. No one went home hungry. My son's first dog Duke came from Ernest. He bred the best Blueheelers you could find. Like he said Every boy needs a dog. I carry a lot of good times and memories with me. He gave a good fight. No more struggles, sickness or pain. He's home. May he Rest in Peace. God Bless

Rest In Peace, dear uncle. You surely will be missed. I will picture you always tending a beautiful garden above. You sowed many seeds on Earth, that will live on through family and friends.

We are so sad that you had to go.

Our thoughts and prayers are with all of your dear family. Blessings. Lori
