Aunt Laurel, I'm so sorry to hear about Uncle Ernie's passing. I have so many great memories from spending time with you two at your lake house while I was growing up. I still don't know how to play pool, but I remember spending hours at the pool table. The $23 in quarters that I won from your slot machine was the most exciting gambling experience I've ever had! I loved playing hopscotch in the sand with Kelly, jumping off the dock, and staying up late on the Fourth of July at the parties. I hope you're doing well. My prayers are with you and the kids! Love you
