Love you always, Grandpa Ernie.
Thank You for the gift of knowing Grandpa Ernie. May he rest well in Your arms and delight in Your presence. Thank You for his service to the country, his sacrifice he’s made for his family, and for all the sweet and precious memories. May I be a light to those around me in the same way that he was for me. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
In this life you embraced him with your tender love; deliver him now from every evil and bid him eternal rest. The old order has passed away: welcome him into paradise, where there will be no sorrow, no weeping or pain, but fullness of peace and joy with your Son and the Holy Spirit forever and ever, Amen!
Love you so much dad…
I want to thank you for everything you’ve done for me and the family and for being the blessing to everyone… especially to me.
I miss you so much and our daily conversations. I know you’re good now and playing with Jazzy (and Blaise and now Chuky).
Thank you for being the role model of who I want to be for the rest of my life. Until we see each other again… I love you dad.
