I’m Ernie You Know!

Biography of Ernest Taylor
Published 2006

Ernie’s daughter Cheryl Taylor commissioned this biography. She says this about her beloved father’s story:

“I cannot express in words how much it means to me to have Dad’s autobiography. It was very precious before Dad died, and now that I no longer have Dad here to talk to about his life it is even dearer to me. Dad was 95 when he died in 2008. He’d led a very interesting life, many aspects of which would have been lost forever if you had not captured them on paper for our family, Ruth.

Not only am I grateful to you for the amazing piece of memorabilia that you have put together for us, but also for the way in which you made the whole thing easy and enjoyable for Dad. Mum said that she could hear much laughter emanating from Dad’s study when you two had your get-togethers there over numerous cups of tea and biscuits. A lot of reflection about Dad’s life was part of the process, and I know that Dad enjoyed sharing it with such an empathetic person as you, Ruth, who was also so genuinely interested in hearing his story.

I marveled at how you were able to put all the information together so that the flow of the book with all its amazing photos and documents is wonderful. The end result is indeed a masterpiece to me. It is very well-written in such a way that I’m sure that even people who didn’t know Dad would enjoy it. Many thanks again.”
