Very sad to hear of Earn passing. Deepest condolences to all of his family. I had the grandkids with me at the trailer for a couple of nights and could not make the service on time. Please accept my apology for that.. Not a lot of use left now and each passing year it gets less and less. I haven’t seen Earl in a while but you can be sure that he is now in a better place, no sickness and no pain. Rest In Peace Earn.

Mary & Girls,
Sorry to read that Ern passed away. The service was over when I read the notice as I would have dropped by to see you.
Sincerely Anna

Condolences to all family and friends of Ern, -(he worked CN,)I first met Ern and Mary many many years ago when they bought their first home from,/thru me, MT. Pleasant ave,. A Wonderful couple they were ,Our thoughts and prayers-God bless–JIM/wife Nelia Campbell ST. John’s NFLD.

Aunt Mary, Chrissy, Leign, Karen & Danah – big hugs to you all – I so wish we could be there with you all right now in your time of loss. May you find comfort in the good memories & the times he made you all laugh. Oh how Uncle Ern loved getting out fishing & hunting – I remember how generous he was with all the codfish & moose he would share. Uncle Ern was such a character & always there to help someone out whenever needed – a kind heart underneath that tall, burly exterior. So many years of work dedicated to CN & Marine Atlantic – he was a hard worker through & through. I know he dearly missed my Mom (his sister Eileen) when she sadly left us all so suddenly – I only hope they are finally together, with Nan & Pop Dodge, catching up & watching over all of us. You are all in our thoughts & prayers.

Love from Kimmie, Austin, Avery & Todd
