From Richard and Cheryl Anderson for a respected Uncle Being an only child myself brought me closer to all my Uncles and Aunts than perhaps I might have been if circumstances had been different. Uncle Ernie was no exception. One of my earliest memories is of him playing with my toys through the bars of my cot. Much later as a young boy on Saturday visits to my grandparents, I had the privilege of waiting on the corner of the street until I could see him way in the distance making his way home with his girlfriend on his arm. I would then run to meet him and the Lady who would eventually become my Aunt Anne. I could then spend the time walking all the way back with them and have them all to myself for a short while. I was too young to realise at the time, but the image of them both smiling and happy in their Saturday best clothes was to have a significant and positive impact on me. Uncle Ernie in a dashing suit, shoes polished to a high shine, perfect Windsor knot on his tie and his trademark gold rimmed glasses walking with Aunt Anne in one of her smart two-piece suits and impossibly high heels. In readiness for interviews for my very first job my Dad decided I too, like Uncle Ernie, would be better off presenting myself in a suit. It was my Uncle Ernie who attended the final fitting with me and Dad and where I learned a valuable lesson that was to help with my professional career. I remember the look on Ernie’s face when I turned to show them both and he wasn't impressed. My Dad asked him what was up and Ernie looked me in the eye and said two things, “Stand up straight like you mean it” and “You don't simply wear a suit like normal clothes, you carry it like its meant to be displayed”. I soon realised that a suit was the uniform of my profession and carrying to show it off to its best advantage made me stand out in a crowd of other suits. In passing on his experience, Uncle Ernie’s positive influence has been a significant contribution in life as well as career, for which I will always be grateful. My then fiancé, now my wife Cheryl and I used to baby sit Dawn and Mark and this brought the four of us even closer to the extent that we were rewarded by Ernie and Anne by Dawn becoming one of Cheryl’s bridesmaids. I also had the privilege of working with Uncle Ernie and his Son, my cousin, Mark with occasional building jobs at the weekends. Uncle Ernie was old school. If a jobs worth doing its worth doing right. Again, I learned a lot by being around him. It was hard physical work and too many stories to include here but it was fun being with them both. Right up until recently, Uncle Ernie kept his wider family in touch by organising regular meetings for lunch. Although this was originally conceived to keep his brothers, sisters and in-laws in touch, it later included some of my cousins and us. In fact, it was on one of these lunches that my son and daughter got to meet some of their extended family for the first time. I am certain that I am not alone when I say how grateful we are for his effort and more importantly that he cared enough to know its importance. His goodness has left its mark on many of us and for that alone it has been an honour and a privilege to have known him. Thank you Ernie.
