I was so sorry to read the obituary about Ernest passing away. His grandfather Englehardt and my grandma were brother and sister along with 7 other siblings. I'm sorry that the family broke up in the 60's. When I was a child they were all very close and every gathering was a party. Please tell Mabel that I am very sorry. I used to call her Mabel Sugar. She would remember me as Patti Ann. My thoughts are with you at this sad time.

Deb, EJ and family, I am very sorry for your loss. I am honored to have gotten the chance to meet Ernie and always enjoyed talking with him on the phone or at the store. For the short time I got to know him, I can tell Ernie was a great man that had a great family around him. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. I'm sorry I will be out of town Saturday. God bless you.
