Spent many happy anniversary parties at Ernie's and Helga's beautiful home. Ernie was a devoted husband and an excellent gardener. He built a wonderful pond in their garden for birds and wildlife and both he and Helga took great pleasure watching them from their outside deck (which he also built) during the summer months. We will miss him and send our deepest sympathy to Helga and all the family members.
