It’s hard to find the right words to say to help ease your pain

but as you know, your being thought of at this difficult time. Even

though Ernie was having a difficult time, he always had a smile on

his face or he made other people have a good laugh. He lived life to

the fullest and enjoyed life in what he did. He is surely going to be

missed dearly and by each and everyone who knew him. Sending

our condolences from Ivan, Daniel, Jonathan & Me( Marilyn).

God Bless and may Ernie rest in peace.
