    I will miss you my dear brother, I loved all the FaceTime calls we shared
    Even though we lived so far away from each other you made time to call me.
    My heart is broken, Until we meet again you will always be in my thoughts

    Memories last forever…and I cherish them all..Especially on Sunday when football is on….😘Barbara thanks for sharing our many talks and laughs that always included Ernie!!💕💕

  • Cuz! Junior, that was what we called him when we were younger. Many good memories….Too young to leave us, we just spoke on Thanksgiving. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family.

  • When John and I moved in beside you and Barbara and Tracy so many years ago in California we had no idea we had just won the *LasVegas* lottery! We acquired a second set of parents and a kid sister, dogs hehe and SO MUCH MORE! What a blessing you have been in our lives! Years went on, moves happened and you continued to care long distance and embrace our children too who were fortunate to also meet you! What a devoted husband and father who adored those two ladies in his life!!! I believe Olivia arriving was just more than he could have ever imagined being blessed to adore! Ernie had an enormous heart and always spoke of all of his family. Forever the deepest of dog lovers and passionate gardener too! You will always bring a smile and laughter when any of us sit in a restaurant and think of you! “That experience” will never be the same! Thank you for being so wonderful to me! I will miss you Ernie. As promised I will always be here for Barbara and Tracy and Olivia. RIP , ❤️Shari

  • Many many years ago in California you & Barbara filled a parent void for me with my daughter, Shari. I never forgot that & was so happy to have visited with you in September of this year. RIP Ernie

  • Dear Tracy, Barbara, Jim & Olivia,
    I never had the pleasure of meeting Ernie in person, but just a few weeks ago he helped me with a floor installation question.
    Knowing Tracy for 5 years I can tell you what I saw through her. Ernie has a devoted wife, daughter and Olivia you are the apple of his eye!
    I hold you all in my heart & thoughts during this difficult time.

  • My heart is with yours. The world was blessed by Ernie What an example he was of living each day to its fullest. May you find comfort in knowing how many lives he touched. Much love and support through your journey always here for all of you Stacey

  • To my “dada”,
    A piece of my heart is gone forever and will always be with you. You were the absolute best daddy a girl could ask for. I was lucky enough to be blessed with two wonderful, caring parents. You were my super hero and I know your with us every day and will always be Olivia’s guardian angel. I promise next time I see you we will go fishing.
    Love forever and a day,
