One day at a time is enough… Don’t look back and grieve the past. It’s gone… Don’t be troubled about the future it has not come yet… Live in the present and make it so beautiful it will be worth remembering. That's how Ernie lived. Monica thank you so much for taking care of and loving our Brother.
