Donna and Teri, Your mother was one of the kindest persons I have ever known. I will miss her very much and every time I come to Dubach, I will remember her. Isaiah: 25:8 He will swallow up death in victory; and the Lord God will wipe away tears from all of our faces. May God's peace be with you at this time.

I have had your family in my thoughts and prayers. I could not be there because I am recovering from surgery and could not drive. Ernestine was so special and had so much love for everyone. She always made you feel so special and was the best hostess. She wanted to feed everyone that came to her house. She cared about people and had no trouble telling you she loved you. I have many treasured memories of growing up with Aunt Ernestine as a role model. I have memories of starting a business and her giving me advice. There are too many memories to list. I am comforted by knowing she is in Heaven and we will meet again. My prayers are with all of your family for the loss of this great lady. Sandra A. Pellegrin

Donna and Terri, What a beautiful service for the best Aunt a person could have. I always felt I was special until yesterday when I realized she treated everyone special. I can imagine my Aunt Ernestine in heaven opening another Tatum's Department Store. The new one is just inside the heavenly gate. Ernestine is greeting everyone that comes in with her loving hugs, smile and handing out new white robes from Tatum's. some day I will hear her whispering in my ear again "you know you really are my favorite". What a loving tribute for a special lady.
