The Ernest family wants you know how sorry we are to hear of Jerry's passing.

You treated my mother as a member of the family and honored her at her passing. You don't know how much we appreciated that.

Mom always considered all of you as family and Andrea, Bennett and Adam, she always considered you her first grandchildren. I think the feeling was mutual for your family.

The sorrow all of you have losing your husband and father is the same for Judy, Jason, Pam and myself since we always felt that all of you were a member of our family.

May his memory be of a blessing to all of you and those who knew him.
