God Bless you Uncle Ernie! When I first met you and Aunt Ann you both were so friendly and gracious. You made me feel so welcome into the Coddington Clan. Heaven has a new hero and a great guy! Love, Debbie

My name is Paula Sabatini Jackson
Uncle Earnie is my god father and my uncle.
I still do have a lot of good memories of him. Just not enough room here to put it all. He did save my life a couple of times. He is a loving and caring man. He was there for my mom when she needed to go back and forth to the doctors. Now my mom and my grandma will show him the ropes on the other side.
I love him and all of my family very dearly.
I really wish I could be there but everyone is sure in my heart and soul.
I love you uncle Earnie and thank you for being there. I will miss you dearly
Until we meet again
Rest In Peace
