Aunty Ernie was like a second mom to me and my siblings while we were growing up. Our families did a lot together and we spent a lot of time together. I was blessed to be able to visit her regularly since I moved back to Mississauga over the past 2 years. Thank you for such a supportive force for me and my family. Rest in peace, Aunty Ernie. You touched many lives.
