We share the loss of our dear friend Ernie with so many friends and family. We are so taken by the suddenness. There were many more songs to sing and many more laughs to laugh – and fish to catch. Our friendship went way back to the early days in Lachine – there are too many stories to share and where would we even begin, we just never expect the stories to stop so soon. And we’ll miss the Birthday serenades. How bittersweet it will be to hear those familiar tunes that Ernie would burst in to with just a little encouragement. He will always be remembered. Our deepest condolences to Jamie and Jenna, Dora, Joey and family.

We first met Ernie at Red Pine Camp. He touched us with his wonderful singing voice and love of life. Ernie guided us through the purchase of reliable second hand cars which contributed to many family road trips and memories. For this, we are forever grateful. Ernie will be fondly remembered and also missed by his friends in Ottawa.

I first met Ernie the summer before we both started singing in Cabaret. He was living at Place Riviera, Pierrefonds. I was looking after a girlfriend’s apartment at the time. While looking for a parking space, I almost had a head on collision with Ernie driving his White Corvette! The gentleman as he was, allowed me to park in the space we both had been eyeing! I never saw him again! Until singing the following fall in Becket Players Cabaret!
I also entrusted Ernie to purchase my daughter’s first vehicle. I never hesitated when he said he found the “perfect” car for her.
Ernie,...just three weeks ago we were laughing together!
Without a doubt your contagious, upbeat personality will sorely be missed!
God is real lucky to have you in his choir of angels!
Peace, Love & Light to all the Laudi family during this terrible & difficult time.
Warmly,
Susan

Dear Ernie,

As we write this, we listen to you singing What A Wonderful World. We feel shock and disbelief, yet every memory of you brings us a smile. That, my friend is telling of a life well-lived. You were always looking for ways to improve someone’s day…with a chocolate, a smile, a call, a song, a message left, an unannounced visit saying “I was in the neighbourhood and thought I’d say a quick hello and see how everybody’s doing”, and when we were really lucky, a few hours of you and Jean-Marie belting out songs in the living room while I got to listen while making supper…how lucky were we? Those were magic moments that will never be forgotten!

Thank you for your friendship over all these years. Thank you for sharing your love of singing, and your enthusiasm for life with us! It is indeed still, A Wonderful World. Ya Baby!

🎶 🎶 🎶 🎶 🎶 🎶 🎶 🎶 🎶 🎶 🎶

Our most sincere sympathies go to your beloved children, Jamie (and his family), and Jenna and to sister Dora and brother Joe and their families.

To the Laudi Family
Ernie's passing comes with shock and sadness. Growing up I was a neighbour of the Laudi Family living on the same street in Lachine. I remember seeing Ernie perform at the El Paso club in the late 60's and the crowd loved his talent and energy. Ernie will be remembered for his special smile and a sense of humour. I had a chance to speak with Ernie on the phone a few years ago while he was visiting his good friend Mark and Diane Hayvren. Hearing his voice brought back memories and of course a smile to my face. Ernie will be missed by all who new him. His spirit will be in our hearts and minds forever. My deepest condolences to all the family
