Dr. Follico was my orthodontist when I was 11 yrs. old and treated me until I was 16. I owe him deep gratitude for giving me a wonderful smile. He really changed my life, giving me confidence with beautiful teeth. What a wonderful job he did.
Gloria and family
I was so sorry and shocked to hear about Ernie's death. I have many found memories of times shared with Ernie at Long beach Naval Dental Clinic and other social Advents. I will always remember and tell the story of Ernie getting me to play racquet ball with him. Well we all know the result of that match. I would challenge him to a basketball shoot out but never got him on the court.
I am sorry to say I think our last get together with you and Ernie was at the Disney hotel drinking Cold Duck. Karen and I both send our condolences.
Doc, you will forever have a special place in my heart. The years I assisted Ernie in his Montebello office were truly some of the most memorable and hilarious times of my life. Ernie lit up every room he walked into and made you feel like you were the only one in it. It was a pleasure and an honor to have worked and socialized with such a remarkable man. I feel beyond blessed to have known Ernie and I thought of him often over the years with love.
Our deepest sympathy to Gloria,Karen,Tina,Anthony & Family.

I wanted to offer my condolences and a comforting thought. John 3:16- For God loved the world so much that he gave his only begotten Son, in order that everyone exercising faith might not be destroyed but have everlasting life.
The one and only "THE DOC" one of my most favorite persons in the world, what an honor to have worked with him and be by his side for 10 years as one of his orthodontic assistants, loved him much, truly a wonderful person. God Bless to Gloria and Family Love Judy (Becker) Peffley

Ernie was a dear friend of our family's. We shared many fun times, including ski trips in Mammoth. Sending our sincere condolences to Gloria, Karen, Tina and Anthony.
I remember Ernie when he played at USC with Olmedo, Contreras, Lemaitre, Reyes, etc. I was at Stanford and competed against them. Ernie was highly regarded as a player and as a person by those of us who knew him in the tennis world, and I send my condolences to his family.
