Ernie and Beth have been like family to me since they started dating while in high school. We share countless memories from good times during their sixty-year marriage. My thoughts and prayers are with Beth and her family during these difficult times. They were dedicated parents and hard working New Englanders who weathered all types of storms during their many years together. Rest in peace, dear friend.
