To the entire Trudeau family and to JJ Ouellette and family. My sincerest condolences. Ernie was a wonderful man. When my Dad, Doug Bulloch, took ill during one of the famours "hunting" trips, I flew up to tend to him. I was in the Sault, knowing nobody, and having to stay nearby in a hotel. Ernie called me and took me out for dinner . He told me such wonderful stories about my Dad. I will never forget such an act of kindness. My Dad loved Ernie and spoke very fondly of him and all of the girls, especially Nancy who always had my Dad over for dinner whenever Ernie was in town. Please know you are in my prayers .

Wow, what a lovely picture and just as I remember your parents in our St.Paul's days. As I recall, your Dad was one of the main initiators of the Search & Rescue Organization in the Sault and along with Marion was very involved in many activities at St. Paul's Church. Our families enjoyed the work and the fun events that made St. Paul's so special as we were all growing up.
My sincerest sympathy to the entire family on the passing of your father. You are in my thoughts and prayers. May your memories bring you peace and contentment in knowing his was a life well lived. I can see them in the same pose and smiles on their faces looking down upon you with great pride.

I remember the good, the fun and the bad. I’ll cherish them all, so many we had.

Ace or ET to some, and Papa to many. ill will or regrets, I don’t have any

A role model and teacher he was to me, His last days on earth were so hard to see

He taught me to trap, to hunt and to fish,but most importantly to never lay by my dish.

A father he was, by chance or by fate, he somehow put food on the table for mom and us 8.

I love you and willI miss you during my remaining quest. Together again, with mom you can rest.

Thanks Dad.
