I would like to give my condolences to the passing Ersula. I have many fond memories of both Ersula and Ernie and I will share one of each. Ersula tried many times giving me swimming lessons at the YMCA in Brockville when I was young, unfortunately they did not work. She would give me a silver dollar at the end of the lessons, which I still have today. Ernie in his workshop made me a toy boat, which he was able to whip up in not time. I also still have this boat to this very day. Ersula was always wonderful to me and my family, always happy and smiling. I will miss Eusula and Ernie, who were a very big part of my life.

We have so many wonderful memories of our aunt. Ersula was so kind to us, a great hostess when we stayed with them many times in Florida to celebrate Christmas, always a ready smile and a hug. We have so many fond memories of the times we had in Brockville. We will miss her very much. Love Don & Glynda

Barb and Family I was sorry to hear about Ersula’s passing. She had such a full life and will be missed by all who know her.
I know that my mom was so happy when your Mom came up to Bridlewood and they arranged to have her sit at her table. They enjoyed each other’s company. I had great times when I had meals with the both of them. Mom was telling me that she enjoyed the times when they went to your parents parties. They all had such great memories. Pat

I have so many memories of Ersula and Ernie. They have always been like grandparents to me. We spent so much time together, with my grandparents, George and Ruth Tindal. We absolutely loved visiting with them in Brockville and Florida. We played bridge and had meals together, told stories, and always had so much fun. My kids Michael and Julie also thought of them as grandparents. I honestly don't know two kinder, gentler, more caring souls than Ernie and Ersula. I am so lucky to have had them in my life. I will miss them both so very much, but they will never be forgotten. Thank you for everything Ersula and Ernie. Please say hi to my grandparents for me, and I can't wait to play bridge again with all of you when we meet again. xoxoxo
