Dear Mark & Donna,
When I saw Ernestine's obituary in the TJP today, my memory went back to growing up in Lubbock and thinking what a sweet, kind woman your mother always was. She always expressed interest in me, my brother, and sister. If my memory doesn't tail me, I think I was your babysitter on occasion! She was truly a lovely woman. May her memory always bring you comfort...Ruth Skibell Hendelman (Dallas TX).

Ernestine was a patient of mine for many years,and she bravely dealt with a chronic medical illness which we shared in common - it never slowed her down! She was a most delightful person,and I extend my sympathy to her family.

My sympathy to the family of Ernestine. I enjoyed knowing her during her stay at Treemont. She always made an impression with her beautiful smile and cheerful disposition. I regret that we were unable to encourage or be of help when she last returned here. God bless her and all of you. Joyce Covey
