I knew Ernie pretty well. He was a good person with strong patrioitic poitical views mostly strong conservative and was not afraid to speak his mind.  I always considered him a friend.  Now I wish to say to him Rest in Peace old friend. You have done well and it is time for you to rest.  Take care and remember to call upon the Lord even in death.  RiP Ernie and may you have eternal rest.
