In Loving Memory of Raymond Albert Erno, Jr.

My father passed away suddenly Sunday night. This is a picture of us when I was 4 years old. For as long as I can remember, he always had this photo in his wallet. For the past decade, he has resided in Florida with my stepmother, Bev, and their children. In recent years I have seen him twice per year. Doug, Julia, Kathryn and I went to Florida and visited him in February. He then came to visit us here in Virginia on March 31st. He treated me to lunch at our favorite place, Ledo's Pizza.

I am so sorry, my thoughts are with you and your family. The resemblance is indeed striking, especially looking at the photo of you on the sidebar next to the one of your dad. He was a very handsome man.
