I'm so very sorry to hear about the loss of our dear neighbor, Ernie. I have lived next to the Clarks for 30 years. Ernie was a terrific guy, warm, friendly, and always willing to answer a question or lend a helping hand. We will miss him very much. Our thoughts go out to all of his family and friends at this very sad time.

Ernie was very special and have many great memories of him. One that has always made me laugh he was in the service in Germany and I sent him a letter but just put a regular stamp on it. He wrote back and told me in the future I may want to send it air mail it took 3 weeks for him to get it. 😄
