My Title of Liberty

     "In Memory of our God, our religion, and freedom, and our peace, our wives, and our children." - Alma 46:12    

My Son, Ernie


Ernie was born in Salem, Oregon, about nine and a half months after his mother and I were married. He was named after his mother's father, but his middle name was the same as my father's first name, so he carries the first names of both of his grandfathers. When he was two, I moved out because I figured the arguments his mother and I were having were not good for him, let alone us.

At first, I had problems getting my regular visitation, but later, there were opportunities for me to see him more often. When his mother went to California to be with her mother as she was dying, Ernie stayed with me and Jane for a while. I got him started with computers.

He worked with a movie crew making sets in Eastern Oregon for a movie called, "The Four Diamonds", which I have yet to see. It has not been released to the public, though I understand it has been shown on the Disney channel.

He is an artist (he used to draw Transformers when he was young) and a musician (plays a keyboard and has been in a marching band).

He has surpassed me in his computer knowledge and is currently working with Supra, a subsidiary of General Electric.

He lives in a house he shares with several other people in Salem, Oregon. For pets, they have ferrets, cats, fish, and a dog.

His mother also lives here in Portland and he gets up here once in a while to visit us.

His website is: http:\\ottershome.net. He calls it Otter's Den.
