From Earl Ernst/AKA "Keeper":
Mom you never treated me like a Son-In-Law, but a loved Son, even when I teased you, but; you did your share too, haha. I guess you put up with me ok since you nicknamed me "Keeper". It was fun dragging you all over the Colorado Rocky Mtn jeep trails in my CJ7. The favorite memory was when Sue & I surprised you with a trip to Crystal Mill in Marble, Colorado. You told us of a post card of the Crystal Mill your Mom had from when your family lived in Hotchkiss, Colorado. Later you did a painting of it. The look on your face when we crested the Mtn and saw it on the cliff ledge above the creek was great! Thanks for the memories Love Keeper
From Sue Ernst:
MOM: I feel so blessed having such an amazing Mom. You made me feel loved, safe & validated. Your generous, compassionate heart brought so much love & joy to so many which taught us the gift of kindness & giving. You will always be my mentor & compass. I take comfort knowing you are at peace in heaven with all our passed loved ones. Including our dear Gary's Brother-In-Arms & friend Sonny Boles. I'm thankful Sonny & his wife Nancy traveled all the way from N. Carolina to embrace & comfort your aching heart for your lost son. Mom I will forever miss you & I keep you forever in my heart with your gift of precious memories.

From Althea:
Aunt Sherry ,you always had a special place in my heart since the first day I met you, when Uncle Grady brought you to Gramp-Pa Louis house. Such a beautiful exciting, suffocated California girl & I was just a little country bumpkin. You were so fun & loveable. Love , from your niece,
From daughter, Glenna:
To my mother, who always gave a 100% and always loved unconditionally. You filled a room with your love & laughter & from out of no where had a hilarious comment unexpected! It is within the depths of my heart & soul that you will always have that special place, called memories. I am the most privileged child to have been able to share these past 11 years with you. We had some great times that I will always cherish. I miss you terribly, already, but know you are now with Jesus and the happiest ever, being united with the love of your life (dad) your sons Bill & Gary, your grandson little Gary, mother Narrah & many friends & loved ones who went on before you. We miss you with all our heart your precious Sparky and me!
