Thank you for your service. Tiger baseball was always with my brothers on the farm. We would turn on the radio and listen as to your voice as the radio which sat on the 55 steel gallon barrel. We would play ball in front of our large white barn dreaming of day that we might play. We would hear the names of the great Tiger players such as Al Kaline, Freehan, Jim Bunning, Norm Cash, Jake Wood, Mickey Lolich, Rocky Colvito, and so many others. We would be so sad when the Yankees beat the Tgers. We loved the song 'Hold that Tiger'. We would go to the game maybe once a year in July. We would sit up in center field. Sometimes a post would be in the way of sight. Didn't matter, we were at the game. I still hear your voice on the radio describing great Tiger plays. I hear the sound of the game. Your description were so vivid - like being the at the game in person. Then I was drafted into the army in 1967. I was in a field hospital in The Republic of Vietnam in October of 1968. I saw a dream on a TV screen. Tape delayed video of the Detroit Tigers. Thank you Ernie! May God rest your soul. JMJ

Paul Carey has joined you today, good sir. Now the games in heaven have the best radio duo ever. Rest in peace, Mr. Harwell. You were the reason I began on the mic.

Ernie, growing up in Grand Rapids, Michigan I always looked forward to the baseball season and listening to you on the radio. You were the best at broadcasting the Tiger games. You and Paul were a great team. Rest in peace and may God richly bless you.

For, lo, the winter is past, / The rain is over and gone / The flowers appear on the Earth / The time of the singing of birds is come / And the voice of the turtle is heard in our land. Yet another baseball season starts today and it will never be the same without your voice, Mr Harwell.
