Through all the trials and tribulations Ernest may have gone through he's always looked after his neighbors and neighborhood. I will always have a special bond in my heart for Him, because of how he's kelp my yard clean and cut over the 20-something years of being my next door neighbor. My condolences to the entire Gamble family. May God bless,
Rest in Peace Ernest.
Linda, Boo, and Nigel Jackson
