What a wonderful lady.I have so many of the wonderful recipe's she used in the business what an awesome cook. Will never forget the wonderful talks we used to have when I would come stay with her and we crocheted for a couple weeks. Got my crafty talents from her.
Earnie I love you and will miss you so very much.

Aunt Earnie touched so many lives with her energy and love. I've so many memories it's hard to choose just one. This much I know, all my memories are treasures, and will be held in my heart forever. Blessings and love to all..............Tina
