I am so sad at the passing of Ernie. He was a good friend of my dad's, Lincoln McMahon, since childhood. He was a great comfort & help to me when my dad passed away in 2008. He even spoke at my dad's funeral . Please accept my sympathies to all of you. But be comforted knowing he is in Heaven with my dad and all his friends and family that has gone before. God comfort and bless you all at this difficult time.
