Ernest was one of my older cousins and although I didn't know him well, I can see from the sentiments left here on this page that he was a dear, sweet person who will be truly missed. Lois, I don't believe that we have ever met in person, yet I know just a smidge about you and the life you shared with Ernie. I just wanted to reach out and extend my condolences and to let you know that you are in our thoughts and prayers. May our good God give you peace and comfort at this time and sustain you the rest of your life with wonderful memories of your dear Ernie.

Met Ernie and his wonderful wife Lois when they moved in to their new house the same weekend we moved in to ours just down the street. We quickly became great friends and have kept in regular touch for the past 27 years. I considered Ernie a dear friend and every time we talked on the phone we enjoyed complaining about the government or something of that nature and he would always tell me "see you got me started again" we would laugh about it. I had the honor to have been able to talk to him on Sunday before he passed. He was a dear friend and will be sorely missed, but thankful to have known him. Rest in peace my friend!

Ernie loved tormenting me, it started when he was born. He was always good for a laugh. I loved when he shared life experiences with us. I'll miss you Ern and that mischievous grin. Rest in peace. Until we meet again, your loving sister.
