To the family of Ernest,
Ernest was my boss, and he was very caring. He loved to joke around and he was a man that did not want much for himself. He shared with others gracefully. Ernest will always have a special place in my heart, and his goodness will remain in others that knew him well. You will be missed but not forgotten.
