Ernie worked as a subcontractor painting homes for my business when I was a contractor. He was such a thoughtful, mellow person. No doubt Ernie has left this earth a tad darker without his shining presence here. My deepest condolences are with his friends and family during this time of loss. Please hold tightly to the sweetest memories you have of him when grief starts to rise up. I�m certain there are many given what a kind soul he was.
A SISTER January 16, 2020
