Ernie was a great friend, lots of fun to be with. My husband Paul (Ernie's younger brother) Ernie, Ninon & I had some fun times together, visiting each other, playing cards, experimenting with recipes, going to restaurants and enjoying each other's company. We miss him very much and think about him all the time. Our condolences to Ninon and family. Our prayers and love.
