    Dear Ernie and family, I remember you and you parents living in our house when I was a little girl. (Korman House) Your mum over the years always was such a love. I would run into her at the Mall or at get togethers and she always had a big hug and a big smile.

    My thoughts are with all. Florin (Korman) Wolfer

    Dear Ernie and Doreen: So many wonderful memories from the past years with your wonderful Mom and the times we spent with your parents. They were such good and loyal friends of the Lemkes. Our deepest sympathy to you and your family at this time. I remember fondly her smile and laughter when my girls told her she reminded them of the Queen. She was just as gracious. I looked forward to visiting with her at the Church suppers and Teas each year. She is at peace.
