I am shocked, and saddened, to hear the news of Ernie's passing. I have nothing but fond, wonderful memories of Ernie and the short time that I was able to spend with him and know him, many years ago. Great memories of boating, laughing, a vacation with the family in the Florida Keys, and numerous outings. Bella and Wendy, I am thinking of you. Please know that I continue to think of you both with a smile and am sending you strength, peace and much love. Sincerely, Sue White-Zurek

Through the years I have lots of memories of the family gatherings when we were all together. Christmas ' at the Vieceli's , pool parties at Zia Olga's, boat rides with Captain Ernie, Point Pelee (that was too, too funny) and many more. He will be missed. In life He was blessed with a wonderful family. May his afterlife be blessed with peace.

I miss you Dad, honestly I miss everything about you. I miss your hugs. I miss your advice and I miss your stories but most of all I miss you. You were my hero. I looked up to you more than anyone and the day that you left was the worst day of my life. I would do anything to see your smiling face again and hear your voice. You are forever with me dad, always in my heart. Wendy Xoxo
