It was 12 years ago today, almost to the minute, when we lost Howard.
I think about him multiple times a day.
I will always love him.
Dad’s are great….Lost mine in 71 when I was 19…..Be thankful you had him awhile and he gave millions of people a smile….I watched him the other night at dinner on the Andy G. Show….What a character…..He will never be forgotten in our generation nor the generation before…..I remember my Dad laughing so hard at Bass and Fife that one time he fell out of bed….. Not a week goes by that I don’t call somebody Ernest T…..Jim Silvester
We all miss your father, he was the best on The a.g.t.v. show. Original humor he had.
It was a complete joy and honor to know Howard. We miss him each day as well.
David, ETB was a complete life force. In every way. And as much as I loved everyone on the AGS no one, no one compared to your Dad. I can’t tell you how often I quote him (and I was a little, little girl when I first ‘met’ him on my TV). And then I laugh. A lot. Miss him every day and am sending you many hugs and best wishes. Wrap yourself in the fabulous memories. xoxoxoxo
I absolutely LOVE ETB! And what a comedic genius! I never get tired of watching the episodes he was in and wish there had been many more. I wish I could have told him that in person. Thanks for the laughter ETB.
We had just visited Mt. Airy NC on May 23 on a pretty wet gloomy day. But my heart burst with happiness and joy seeing buildings familiar to the show. I imagined being there with Andy, Barney, and especially Ernest T! The antique mall had quite a bit of memorabilia and photos of the cast. I bought a vintage printing block of a “M” for Mayberry. I still want to go back for Mayberry days and relive happier times with members of the Mayberry family
Just watched the classic episode with Ernest T Bass… “How do you do Mrs Wiley” was a memorable line in Andy Griffith show “My Fair Ernest. Also he kept calling his girl Romena. Hah ha ha. Howard will forever be remembered. 7.14.17
It can’t be that long ago! It seems like just yesterday I spoke with him at Mayberry Days and found out he was also on Midway Island! and the great tribute to Jerry Lewis….I remember going to see him at the Drive-In with others as I was too young to drive at that time! I will always hold dear the short while we had to speak as he was just a plain down to earth person like me, but he was so much more talented!! Thanks for sharing him with us!
