Our condolences to your family. It was fun to be near Ernie because he always made you feel important and part of his family. I remember going deer hunting with my Dad and Uncle Ken and Uncle Ernie and the great stories they would tell. You were always welcome in their home and it is true, he could fix anything! Thank you for being part of my growing up years and for letting us share in your life's experiences. May the Lord Bless all of you in all you do.
