I am so sorry that such a good soul and big heart had to leave too soon. I am sure you will be missed beyond imagination. I love your mom and dad so much and have been friends with them for many years. I was around during you growing up but I heard stories from them and from people in town of what a good person you were and I have know doubt because you have 2 great parents who raised you. I knew most of your family and all are and were great people. I am sending my love and prayers to all the family and many friends . RIP Ernie Jr. from Mona Lee
