Ernest was very special person, cousin and friend. He was always a happy person. He was humorous and never met a stranger. He was well known and loved man. Naz , I know you will be lost for a while. Turn to you friends and share the many memories you have. I loved Ernest and so did Bobby. I will never forget what he and Bobby said about their four wheel drive trucks.
Ernest had a Ford, Bobby had a Chevrolet and bragged about who’s pulled the best. As you remember they were a lot more to it. They were so many good times with Ernest and you. Kyle and Cory said no one could grill chicken like Ernest. I could go on and on. Ernest was loved by many. He was always helping others. Naz you are in
... my prayers. Love you. Ellen
