Dear Carol and Cindy,
Kevin and I are so sad to hear that Ernie has passed away. I have many fond memories of him and his wonderful good humor. He was always smiling and always willing to do a good deed for anyone. I know you will miss him. Though we haven't been able to see him in many years, we will always remember his kindness and good nature.

Enjoyed going to school with Ernie. We had our best time playing basketball for good old Westfield High. Ernie came to see me in Oklahoma when we were both in the army. A great guy and teammate
