So very sorry to learn of Ernest's passing, Lorna and he spent many an evening at my place playing tunes. I loved when I made him chuckle... that little laugh he had and the little twinkle he'd get in his eye from my smart mouth.

Lorna, my condelences on the passing of Ernest. Ernest lived a wonderful 91 years and shared his many travels through life with you Aunt Lorna. He shared his love for music and he enjoyed the out doors. Ernest enjoyed fishing on the rivers and he had his favourite spots that he kept secret. Ernest had a wonderful smile and always had a sparkle in his eyes. He will be sadly missed by all that had the opportunity to have heard him play his guitar. I recall my parents telling me of how he and Earl played at the Keltic Lodge in Ingonish . Uncle Ernest shall be missed by all his family relatives but he shall live on in their hearts and stories pasted on to the next generation.
