We wish to express our sympathy for your loss of Ernie. You are in our thoughts and prayers. I always enjoyed talking to Ernie whenever I went to United Rent-alls when he worked there.

When Ernie had to sell raffle tickets for the church he just bought them all. He went directly to the Priest on the last day to turn in the tickets. Dee and Ernie went on vacation and when they came back Ernie had won. We laughed that he had connections. I am blessed to have so many memories of Ernie and Dee and all of the family. You all will be in my heart and prayers forever. Peace be with you. Love, Nancy
