We had the privilege of knowing Ernie through the Sr. Class at the gym and enjoyed visiting and exercising with him. He will be missed but not forgotten. Don & Jane for the gym class. Reply to this comment

Ernie was truly a great man. He always had a smile on his face, and a prank or two up his sleeves. I miss him seeing him everyday! You will truly be missed. RIP and hope to see you again one day Reply to this comment
